Meets every 2nd Tuesday of the month in the Library Meeting Room.
We’ll be discussing a different area of genealogy research each month. Our speaker, Jeffery Vaillant, President of the Sonoma County Genealogy Society and genealogy junkie loves a challenge, so come with your questions!
January 9 – Immigration and naturalization records, fold3
February 13 – Federal and State census, draft registrations, city directories
March 13 – Genealogical and historical societies, state and local libraries
April 10 – County histories, reverse genealogy (locating living relatives)
May 8 – Genealogical research checklist
June 12 & July 10 – What is Your Genealogy Adventure? Bring your stories of success and challenges to share with others.
Notice that the focus is on United States records, however, each topic has its international element.
