Are you related to one of Petaluma’s founding families?

Gaze into the eyes of Petaluma’s pioneers with an online exhibit presented by the Petaluma Historical Library & Museum. The important genealogical resource makes accessible over 400 portraits of Petaluma’s first families and shares a bit of background concerning the history and background of the photographers and subjects.

In addition to photography, the website includes an interactive 3-D video and audio guide that allows you to step inside the exhibit as it first ran in the museum in 2017.
