The History of Tehama County
     The Tehama County Genealogical and Historical Society (TCGHS) will sponsor a free one-hour Power Point program in collaboration with the Tehama County Museum. The venue for the program will be the Marty Gfaffell Annex at the Tehama County Museum in the City of Tehama, and the presenters will be Chris Bauer, Darrell Mullins and Pam Britting of the museum.
     Chris is quick to point out that this is not the same program as the one given at the Farm Bureau's Farm/ City Night. He says, "That was the skeleton version - they only wanted 15 minutes. This program adds flesh and muscle and a few stories, but still no one-hour program can do justice to the complete history of the county. Folks who want to "bathe" in Tehama County history need to get a copy of our "Tehama County 1856-2006" publication" and dive in. (He can say "our" because he is also a member of the TCGHS.) Chris also mentioned that, with so many of us having dual membership in the two organizations, this is a perfect opportunity for us to work together to preserve and present the history of our county.
