Wordless Wednesday: #EastBayGives' genealogy supporters

We've got #EastBayGives supporters everywhere!  Even Judy G. Russell, The Legal Genealogist, pitched in to help.  Check out who else is a supporter below.  We'd love to have you become one too.


Our goal from East Bay Gives is to raise $10,000 for a new microfilm/microfiche reader for the library. It should make genealogy research faster and easier for all of us.

What's East Bay Gives anyway?  It's a community-wide, one-day online giving event.  It's specifically designed to help local non-profits both raise contributions and increase their visibility through the combined marketing efforts of over 500 organizations.

Please give on May 3rd and help us reach our goal.

East Bay Gives: Look who's supporting this event on May 3rd!

If you follow us on social media, then you may have seen a few tweets or Facebook posts by now about #EastBayGives, the May 3rd online giving event.

It's an opportunity for us to raise money towards our goal of $10,000 to purchase a new microfilm/microfiche reader for the library.

How does it work?  On May 3rd, go online to http://eastbaygives.org/npo/california-genealogical-society and donate. The money is collected by the The East Bay Community Foundation and will be returned to us without any fees.  Want more details?  A more in-depth blog post will be posted shortly with all the information.

In the meantime, look who's lending their support, you might know a few of them!
