Research Database

Welcome!

 

Welcome to the Yore Sequoia Research Database. Are you an historian, archaeologist, educator, or student seeking additional information about Sequoia National Park and its vicinity and those who helped shape it? This database provides a structured way to search for such information. The database currently includes collections of photographs and documents; detailed information about people; and detailed information about mining district claims. The database allows you to list the data in a table based on specific criteria, sort the data, view data records, and explore the relationships between people, mining district claims, and documents.

NOTE: In compliance with federal laws, some of the information is protected and can be accessed only by people who log in to the system. This is primarily information that can reveal the locations of archaeological sites. If you are a qualified archaeologist, you can request access to the information by contacting the National Park Service, obtaining permission, and then sending that permission to us.
