Spring 2022 newsletter

A new issue of the Colfax Cobblestones newsletter is available online. If you are a member of the CAHS, you have received a printed copy in the mail.

The March/April issue of the newsletter has two great articles: Part 2 of John Rambottini’s walk around downtown Colfax, California, a century ago and Roger Staab’s article about how we are organizing the Archives to make them easier for you to do research with the materials. Together these two articles fill eight of the 10 pages in the newsletter.

John Alfred Rambottini and his wife, Daisy, year unknown. John was a member of the Auburn Whiskerinos, “a fun-filled fraternal fixture in Auburn since the 1930s.” Its members joined the Auburn Native Sons of the Golden West in 2002, according to a 2004 article in the Auburn Journal. The Whiskerinos sponsored beard-growing competitions to celebrate 49er culture. Photo from the CAHS Archives.

This and other issues of the newsletter can be read or downloaded on the Newsletter page.
