The UDC California Division Members Database: Using Spatial Analysis to Shed
new Light on the Formation of Civil War Memory in California
In this paper, I present a detailed digital database of all the 6637 organization’s members and officers from roughly half the
years between 1914 to 1979, with additional summarized data for the years 1900-1914. The database is a result of digitization of
membership rolls, including role and addresses, from several dozens yearbooks: scanning, transcribing, extracting structured data
from the transcription, curating and finally geolocating all addresses.
