Can’t get to the Sahyun Library? Our Library Research Assistants perform limited Santa Barbara County research as time allows.

Extensive genealogical research cannot be performed, but they can assist you with:

  • look-ups in our library’s physical collection including City Directories and local school yearbooks
  • research of Civil War Veterans
  • offsite research (land records, wills, etc.), which may incur a fee
