HISTORICAL ATLAS MAP OF SOLANO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA
1878
By Nancy Justus Morebeck




Research

The index to the property owners and township lists of Thompson and West's "Historical Atlas Map of Solano County" merits some explanation. Every attempt was made to exception of property outside of Solano County. First, a list of the township abbreviations is as follows:

Township
Abbreviation
Vacaville
VCVL
Silveyville
SLVL
Tremont
TRMT
Elmira
ELMR
Maine Prairie
MNPR
Rio Vista
RVTA
Denverton
DNVT
Montezuma
MNTZ
Suisun
SUSN
Green Valley
GRVL
Benicia
BNCA
Vallejo
VLJO



Each map was numbered by the PAGE number in the original book and is so referred to in the index. For example the map found on page 50 of the original book is listed as PAGE 50 in the index. Each map is then divided into four sections to make the location of a property owner more easily found. The section are A B C and D.

Be certain to check each name for different spellings. There were mistakes in the original work and every effort was made to make this index true to the text. Also check the initials of the person that you are researching--Some property is under the initials specially if it was a small parcel. For example, John Lemon might have a small piece of property as JL in the index.

One other explanation is necessary--entries of more than one time on a page. This will be found if the property owner was listed as the owner on more than one piece of land on the page.
