The EGS through the volunteer efforts of its members has built the several databases about Escondido Genealogy described on this page. The databases also contains people from the surrounding areas of Escondido which is referred to as "North County". The names of these places are Cardiff, Carlsbad, Encinitas, Fallbrook, Lake San Marcos, Leucadia, Oceanside, Pala, Pauma Valley, Poway, Ramona, Rancho Bernardo, Rancho Penasquitos, San Marcos, Scripps Ranch, Solana Beach, Valley Center, Vista.

Besides browsing the individual documents, you can search all of the documents on this site at once here. This is the same as the "Search Our Site" box in the top right hand corner of all of our pages. It uses Google to do the searching and it is NOT based on surname though that is probably the most likely search term.
