Guestbook Entries - March 1 - Dec 31, 1999


first of all i enjoyed the diversity and oppertunity offered by your website. my reasons for finding it however are somewhat selfish. it starts in the summer of 1983, on the beaches of waikiki, oahu, hawaii. yes you guessed, two peaple met and the falt eral followed. it has been some fifteen years since then and fifteen years since these two peaple have seen or spoken to one another. it is my hope to someday find this person for if nothing else but to take a trip down memory lane. all i have is a name, KAREN GARNER, and the fact that she lived in livermore. i beleive she attended livermore high school and graduated sometime around 1983. after that i've little left but memories. perhaps out of compasion or a romantic heart you could post this or maybe fo rward it to anyone whom you might think can help. if nothing else it is a good story. i wish you all good health and good spirits, oh and one more thing MERRY CHRISTMAS. thankyou Tai Johnson, badmed@dancris.com

I and my brother Steve (deceased) were born in St Pauls Hospital. 1941 for me, 1948 for Steve. My Father, his 3 b rothers, Carmellus, Russell and Leo, and their mother Margaret calahan Owens were also born in Livermore. My Mother's family came from Nebraska and settled in Livermore.

Love the web site and thanks for the R'wood publicity. I'm fascinated by the contacts from people named Livermore, especially the British. Has anybody followed up on these?

I have been to Livermore repeatedly on assignments to LLNL. Now I hear rumors that people at the lab are trying to get rid of building 212, the last of the hangars from the lab site's early days as a naval training air base. The hall is a magnificent redwood structure of maybe the late 1930s. Also, it is a centerpiece of the early days of the National Laboratory, with accelerator vault and some old installations. It is situated near the south fence, near the bus stop. Before someone decides to let it fall into disrelict (although now acyive laboratories are running inside) for the general financial shortages, it may be the time to begin lobbying towards obtaining a historical / technical landmark status. Once it is gone, it's gone ! Keep this truly remarkable item of Livermore history maintained, try to see it on an Open Lab Day (that roof!) and marvel.

Born and raised in Livermore until I moved to Nevada in 1978. We go back at least once a year to visit my mother. Wish I could visit more often. Great site...please add more pictures to the slide show. Thanks.

I also grew up in Livermore. We moved there in 1966 where I attended Maryland Ave. School. Is it still there? After that I went to Third street School and then Inman, which was torn down several years ago. It was located across the highway from the gol f course on Doolan rd. I graduated from Livermore High in 1975 and left the next year to serve in the Air Force. I have been back many times and watched it change a lot. My dad had a chance to buy 20 acres on Los Positas next to 580 (where there is now an industial complex) for about $75,000, but he said it was worthless land and way too high priced. Guess thats why he never got rich! Livermore is a great town and I do miss it from time to time but you sure have to pay a price for the climate. Example: I own a brand new 3600 SF house in a gated private community on 1/2 acre lot with the closest house over 200 yards away. I paid $230,000 for it here in Texas. How much would the same house be in Livermore?

This is a great web site. For those of you who want to connect with your roots, I suggest you check out the Livermore-Amador Genealogical Society's web site, at www.l-ags.org. Also, if any genealogists and family historians read this, we are looking for the locations of California City Directories for the years 1929, 1930 and 1931. The reason is that the 1930 United States Census has not been indexed! The Census will be released in 2002. You may contact me at my e-mail address. David Abrahams, Li vermore, CA

Very very nice. I was raised in Lafayette, and recall a similar "county seat" on Upper Happy Valley Road owned by an Oakland judge who, after my virtual visit to Livermore, I for the first time realize was in all likelihood behind some similar scenes a t that time. PastPorts is combines oral history with travel, virtual and real. When our web site is up and running, we'll let you know.

Enjoyed the picture of the Carnegie Library. Rode my bike over for many visits when living in Livermore. I suppose they have bulldozed the Livermore Elementary School on 5th Street where I attended Mrs Fannuchi's 4th grade 1952-3 and Miss Gerber's 5t h grade in 53-54. I also have fond memories of Den 3, Cub Scout Pack 1, and being a member of the championship Black Panthers (no political connotations back then, it was just a name) midget baseball team at the Livermore Recreation center near the schoo l.

I remember the fish in the library fountain, and visiting Holdener's Dairy in about second grade, when it was next to "Boot Hill". A long time ago now, but not forgotten!
