Pioneer, Century and First Family Certificates
(Non-members may apply and receive certificates upon qualification!)
To qualify for the Pioneer Certificate applicants must have ancestors that lived in Siskiyou County during the years of 1850-1880. (Please see qualifications listed below.)
Please note: Siskiyou County was originally part of Shasta County. The County Seat was such a distance from the Yreka area that the residents decided to split from Shasta County, and thus Siskiyou County was formed in 1852. Later, in 1874, residents of the eastern portion of Siskiyou County split off and formed Modoc County. Because of this history, we consider pioneers living in these other areas between the years of 1850-1874 to be Siskiyou County residents, and their descendents are qualified to receive a Siskiyou Pioneer Certificate.
To qualify for the Century Certificate applicants must have ancestors that lived in Siskiyou County during the years of 1881-1910. (Please see qualifications listed below.)
