Tustin Area Historical Society - Digitizing Our History

The Tustin Area Historical Society is moving forward with community based
programs by launching "Forward to the Past" - Digitizing Our History.

Issues of The Tustin News starting with 1922 through 2000 have been digitized by the TAHS and searchable on Newspapers.com or on a dedicated computer terminal at our museum.
(Free to members...small fee to non-members)

We have also been working with Classmates.com to fill in missing Yearbooks to be digitized
from Tustin High School and Foothill High School.

Located just inside the museum we have set up a Computer Research Center for our members.
Classes and startup orientation groups will begin as soon as possible.

Every website has it's own way of searching for information.
