WHAT IS CCHS? >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
>CCHS was founded in 1954 as a federation of historical societies, museums, libraries, and other history-oriented groups and individuals with a common appreciation and love of history.
> CCHS helps historians, and others who are interested in history, to connect and share information -- joining efforts to preserve records, artifacts, sites, and buildings. This website is the gateway into joining this unique endeavor with other passionate individuals and groups throughout California. The network of sharing is in place and ready for your involvement.
> CCHS also helps local societies and small museums with skills in management, acquisition, preservation, and restoration techniques. Through its extensive series of workshops, symposiums, and annual meetings, CCHS is delivering what you need to be successful.
This website is an extension of the CCHS effort. It is your opportunity to join us and learn what others are doing with similar expectations. We hope you take advantage of what is offered and enjoy our resources. If you are not yet a CCHS member, please join us. Your involvement will make us collectively stronger.
