Legislators Needing Birth/Death Dates Researched

Of the 4443 people who have served in California's state legislature since 1849, we lack even the most basic biographic information on more than half. We're in the process of reviewing the information already collected and making sure that JoinCalifornia and the other databases we use contain matching information and are as complete as possible.

At this point, information for all but five legislators whose service started after 1930 has been located.

Looking forward to when we're halfway there (when there are more than 2223 in the Completed column).
