Sonoma Fire Project wants your stories



The Sonoma Valley Historical Society invites residents of the Sonoma Valley, the Springs, Glen Ellen and Kenwood to submit stories and photographs about how they and their families were affected by the October fires. These will be archived at the Historical Society in a special collection called “The Sonoma Fire Project” and will be used for research, local journalism, and possibly future publications.

If you’d like to submit your story and photos, send them to sonomafireproject@gmail.com. You can write in the body of the email, or attach a Word document. Photos can be attached in any format. It will also be helpful to have the following information:

  • Where you live (you don’t have to give an exact address, the general location is fine). 
  • How long you have lived in the Sonoma Valley. 
  • Why you came here. 
  • What kind of work you do. 
  • Mailing address and phone number. 
The museum will send you a form to sign indicating that you give permission for your story and your photos to be used by researchers and journalists. Your name will always be associated with what you write and what you photographed.

The historical society is doing this project to document the individual, personal side of this great regional tragedy, and are grateful to everyone who wants to participate.

If you have any questions, just send them along to project manager Lynn Downey at sonomafireproject@gmail.com or call 694-0440.
