1990-2010 Record Cross-Reference

From 1964 through 1990, the first word of an index entry was abbreviated so, for example, SECURITY PACIFIC NATIONAL BANK would appear as SEC PAC NATL BK.

In 1990 we discontinued the practice of abbreviating the first words so in our example, SECURITY PACIFIC NATIONAL BANK appeared in the index as SECURITY PAC NATL BK.

Beginning January 1, 2010, SECURITY PACIFIC NATIONAL BANK will appear as SECURITY PACIFIC NATIONAL BANK.

When searching for a record prior to 2010, remember to use abbreviations; after January 1, 2010, search under the exact name of the person or company.

The following abbreviations were used between 1990 and 2010.
