San Luis Obispo County California Death Notices, Obituaries and Articles
Introduction: The information below and on subsequent Web Sites is from a series entitled:
"100 Years Ago" by Wilmar N Tognazzini.
Wilmar N Tognazzini passed away 20 October 2013 near his home in Morro Bay, San Luis Obispo County, California.
This Site and the others linked to it are dedicated to his memory. He was a great SLO historian and it was my pleasure to meet him at the Palm Street Library while he was doing research on microfilm.
~ RIP Wilmar ~

Four of them have been put online and can be found here: [1896, 1897, 1898, 1899] Others are spiral bound and located in the Public Libraries [Black Gold System] of San Luis Obispo County.
