Hi,

You didn't say where or how you are stuck so I made some assumptions.

Have you ordered copies of the obits? Obituaries are great sources of information. There is an obituary volunteer at freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~obitl/volca.html
Scroll down to San Diego Co.

If he can't find them, contact the San Diego Library, sdcl.org
