The J.F.A. Began its work in 1984 in Folsom, California.  The Archives represents the accumulation of over thirty years of research from members of the family all over the United States and continues with the work originally begun by the late Carol Ina James (1943-2009).  Below is a list of the active and past family historians that have contributed their valuable time and skills to the James Family Archives and to the preservation of our family’s history.
