Meets every 2nd Tuesday of the month.

Something new…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!
March 14 – Federal and State Census, draft registrations and city directories
April 11 – Genealogical and historical societies, state and local libraries and writing effective queries
May 9 – County histories and reverse genealogy
June 13 – Genealogical research checklist
July 11 – Probate and military records, National Archives
August 8 – Land and tax records
Notice that the focus is on United States records, however, each topic has its international element.
More classes to come: 9/12, 10/10, 11/14, 12/12.
