5000+ catalog records at the Computer History Museum (CHM)

We’ve researched and cataloged over 5000 items (both hardware and software) at the CHM in Mountain View, California. Here is a typical catalog record.

We wrote an article for the Six Fifty e-zine about our experiences at the museum:

…and we regularly blog about our CHM museum experiences.

History of a small town in the Sierra foothills

Some years ago, when we moved to El Dorado Hills, California, we found out no history of the town existed. So we wrote it ourselves. Copies of the book are available in the Placer County library system.
