"I see dead people."

Death records can be very helpful in understanding the past. Here are some free online resources for O.C. historians who want to learn more about the people who once lived here.

HeritageQuest (available through many libraries) also contains a lot of useful information, and is even better, but charges a membership fee.

Of course, to get very far with historical research you'll probably need to talk to people, read actual books, and dig through the extant records and newspapers yourself - But you can get a good jump start with sites like the ones listed above.
