I am building an archive of Livermore class pictures on the web at this URL: http://students.washington.edu/mcfann/classpics/ If you have any old class pictures, scouting pictures, or other pictures showing Livermore kids with their friends, classmates, and other associates, please scan them for me.

I am interested in the history of the home originally built for the Cerutti's in 1925, the house is located at 618 McLeod St.. There son owned a auto parts store in town years ago, or so I'm told. I am also looking for photos. I would appreciate any help.

Nice website. I didn't know it existed. I was born in Livermore 1937, Graduated LHS 1955. Parents- Herman & Edythe Wood had the first Boy Scout and Gir Scout troops in Livermore (1937-) Maybe I can get you some info for you on their years in scouting in Livermore. Keep the Heritage Society going. It's important. Masry Wood Fallin

I just read the Heritage Guild pages on Livermore. I grew up in Livermore, moved their in the 7th grade, graduated from Livermore High School in 1969, married and had my children there. I moved away in 1983, but every once in a while I return. It amazes me how much it has grown. I work in Trinity County, and I ship some of our medical equipment down to Livermore. Although, I do think it was a great town when it was smaller. It's too bad all the great places have to grow up too.

Thank you for the excellent website. It is very informative. My grandfather five or six time removed was Robert Livermore. My parents (Walter and Anne Koerlin) are included in the family tree in Janet Newton's excellent book on the life of Robert Livermore. Sincerely, Jim Koerlin James W.

Hi, I was born in the Old Livermore hospital in 1952. I lived there until I was five then moved. Moved back in high school and graduated from Livermore High 1971. Lived there from 74-78 then had to move when they closed the Vallecitos plant where my husband worked. Livermore is probably one of the prettist towns in Calif. I wish I could move back there now. My brother owns the Old Town Saloon on First Street and my 90 year old grandma lives on Livermore avenue. HAve alot of relatives living there. Be glad you live in such a wonderful place! I will always consider myself from Livermore. I want to be buried there!

I enjoyed your web site, it brought back many childhood memories. I grew up in Livermore, arriving in 1960 (father worked at the "Radiation Laboratory" or "Rad Lab") and leaving after graduating from Granada HS in 1974. I studied Livermore history in grade school, some of which is coming back to me as I read through the site. Keep up the good work.

Wonderful web site. I was born here in 1939 so really have seen the town grow into a city. Does anyone remember my half-sister Lorraine Bubnar? She came to Livermore around 1937. Our dad, John, worked at the VA Hospital. She told me she remembered Carol Jean Farmesis, of Carol Jean's Dance Studio, when Carol Jean first started giving dance lessons. She also asked me how Fred Holdner, Jr. was doing these days--anyone know?

Thanks for the great section on the time capsules! What fun! It was great to attend the three search days, see the old capsule found and opened and be present for the burial of the new one. Watching the reburial of the centennial capsule was good too. The events brought people together who hadn't seen each other in years or hadn't met before. Great fun! Good to read all about it on the Guild web site!

I am a journey doll and a friend of Tyler Nakaya. I am visiting with friends in Livermore. They are showing me the historical sites and places in this beautiful city. The Carnegie Building, Ravenwood Estate, The Southern Pacific Railroad Depot, The Win eries, The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and all the great parks are a few of the interesting places I visit while in Livermore. I will certainly tell my friend, Tyler at home, what a wonderful city Livermore is. Thank you very much, the journey doll.

I think Livermore is beautiful. The rolling hills and good weather make it an ideal place to be..not to mention Concannon and Wente winerys..My wife went to Livermore High and her father worked at the "Lab" for over twenty years. They still live on Luc ille street. I would love to retire to Livermore if I can talk my wife into it.

Thanks for the presentation. I am from Fresno, CA but moved to Michigan when I was a teenager. The company my husband and I work for has a site in Livermore and I was curious about the area because it is not too far from several of my relatives homes . It sounds like a wonderful community. Maybe we'll visit sometime.

I enjoyed scrolling through the messages. My great-grandfather, Jacob Rees came to Livermore, actually Corral Hollow at to open coal veins with his brother-in-law, Jenkin Richards, and later opened a Harnass shop in Livermore. My great uncle, Will Re es, was also a mayor of Livermore. I don't know the name of the newspaper, but wonder if there is an obituary for Jenkin? He died in Oakland, I believe in 1904.

Great site. I was searching for info on the Lincoln Highway which I find I have lived on most of my life (Hayward, Livermore, Tracy, Rock Springs Wyo & Farmington Ut.) Can't wait to come back and visit the Duarte Garage. I graduated LJUHS in '61 and remember when the science building was new and we had to catch the Russian who had just put up Sputnik. Keep us the good work!
