Speakers & Programs

Have you heard a great genealogical talk somewhere else and think that CGS should invite that person to speak at our library? Please let us know.

Suggestions – Field Trips

Field Trips

Is there some place you’d like the society to plan a fieldtrip to? These are typically one-day events. In the past we’ve visited the State Archives in Sacramento, the San Francisco Library, Sutro Library, Bancroft Library. Where would you like to go or go again?

Suggestions – Research Trips

Research Trips

Typically, CGS plans one or more research trips to genealogical libraries in other states. We regularly visit the Salt Lake City Library, the Allen County Public Library in Fort Wayne Indiana, and The New England Historic Genealogical Society (NEHGS). In 2016, we went to Washington DC. Are there other places you’d like CGS to visit? Do you have a suggestion of who might lead such a trip?
