Topics in Genealogy @ Library Meeting Room | San Rafael | California | United States

Our speaker, Jeffrey Vaillant, Director of the California Genealogical Society and genealogy junkie, loves a challenge, so come with your questions! Each month he’ll be discussing a different area of genealogy research.

Meets every 2nd Tuesday of the month (unless otherwise noted) in the Library Meeting Room.

Notice that the focus is on United States records, however, each topic has its international element.

At the San Rafael Libraries and all of the MARINet libraries, you have FREE in-library access to the most popular genealogy research tool – Inside any of the city and county libraries, just log in with your library card number and PIN/password.
