Beginning Genealogy Series

Are you ready to plant your family tree? 

by Maureen Hanlon

Ready to begin your family history research?  You’re in luck!  

October 2015 marks the return of our Beginning Genealogy Series at two locations, the California Genealogical Society and Library on Saturday afternoons, and the Oakland FamilySearch Library on Wednesday mornings.  Whether you are looking to build your genealogy research foundation or gain more in-depth knowledge, this set of four classes will help take you to the next level.

Lavinia Schwarz, a popular teacher and member of our Research Team, will lead off the series with an Overview Class.

The second session follows with experienced leader, Jeff Vaillant, who will delve into Vital Records.

Maureen Hanlon will cover census records with an emphasis on searching strategies for the US Federal Census.

Jane Lindsey will share the rich world of Secondary Sources at the final session. 

Whether you’re working or retired, we’ve got a class that we think will suit your schedule.  There will be two separate sets of on-going classes that will be taught at two different locations.  When you register, you have two options to consider:

The weekend option:

When: 10:30 to noon beginning on Saturday, October 24th and ending on November 14th.  It will be held on successive Saturdays.  Please register for this session here.

The weekday option:

When: 1:00 to 2:30 beginning on Wednesday, October 21st and ending on November 11th.  It will be offered on successive Wednesdays.  Please register for this session here.
