Fall Book Party! You Are Invited! Come Leaf Through the New Publications!

Join us at the society for “An Autumn Celebration of Books” as we launch three significant new titles and celebrate the resurrection of our journal, The California Nugget.

Mighty oaks from little acorns grow and the sturdiest family trees are rooted in sound research. Our publications will help you find your way through the forest! We are very excited about presenting these new “leaves," and we're proud of these meticulously researched publications that will contribute valuable information and new resources to the genealogical community.

This event heralds the publication of three new titles:
  • San Francisco Probate 1906 - 1942: Register of Actions
  • San Francisco Deaths 1865-1904: Abstracts from Surviving Civil Records
  • The Ancestry of Theodore Timothy Judge and Ellen Sheehy Judge: Including the Families of Boland, Roussel, Harman, McMurphy, Kelley, Bohane, Chapin, Freiermuth, Taylor, Moore and Farneman
We're also asking our member authors with new titles to join the celebration and to be available for questions and books signings. Please email me if you can join the fun!

Update (8/9/2010): Three member authors will be celebrating their books with us.
  • Linda Foster Arden - Letters From the Storm: The Intimate Civil War Letters of Lt. J. A. H. Foster    
  • Ron Arons - WANTED! U.S. Criminal Records 
  • James Smith - The California Snatch Racket: Kidnappings During the Prohibition and Depression Eras
