Back to School at the California Genealogical Society!

It's Back-to-School time at the California Genealogical Society!

Join us for a free introductory class on Saturday, October 1, 2015, from 1:00 until 3:00. You may register for this class on our Eventbrite page.

The class – Genealogy: An Introduction – is part of our monthly "First Saturdays Free" open house when we welcome non-members and the general public. We open the library and share our resources with anyone interested in learning more about their family history. The library is located in the historic Breuner Building at 2201 Broadway, Suite LL2, in Oakland

The will focus of this class will be on basic research methods and terminology. Learn about common (and uncommon) family history records and the resources available, both online and in libraries, repositories, and archives. The two-hour session also includes a tour of the library and an overview of our extensive holdings. But don't think you have to be a beginner to benefit from the class! Our instructors do a great job of tailoring each session to the experience and needs of the participants so that everyone comes away with new knowledge.

If you have already taken this class or are ready for the next step, consider enrolling in the Beginning Series. There are two sessions offered in October, one on Wednesday afternoons and one on Saturday mornings. You can read more about these in our blog. For more details and to see a list of other upcoming classes, please visit our Eventbrite page. 

For more information about the California Genealogical Society, please visit our website or take a look at our most recent edition of the eNews.  

Our library is a benefit of membership and is available to non-members for a $5.00 day fee. However, the fee is always waived on the first Saturday of the month, as well as during October's Family History Month!

Fall 2015  introductory classes are as follows:
October 3: Pam Miller
