Modeled on a similar guide by the Illinois State Genealogical Society, the CGS product reflects the unique resources available and particular problems encountered with California research.
The Insider’s Guide To California Genealogy contains:
- An overview of California history in a timeline format
- Lists of general California research websites and resources
- Research strategies for the Golden State
- More than 130 different links to essential websites
- 22 subject sections including Census and Vital Records, Land and Maps, Newspapers and more.
CGS is the second large genealogy society to publish a state research guide in this format. We gratefully acknowledge our "far-flung" member, Thomas MacEntee, for gifting the project to CGS. I'm looking forward to thanking Thomas "in person" later this morning on the Blog Talk Radio show My Society presented by the Federation of Genealogical Societies, when we will discuss Insider's Guides to Genealogy.
