Colorful collage of photos from the CGS 125th Anniversary party.

This issue recognizes the society’s 125th anniversary, which we have been celebrating all through 2023. It starts with the cover, a festive collage of photos from the October gala at Lake Temescal, and continues with a collection of stories from more than a dozen contributors, each of them reflecting on where an ancestor was in 1898, the year the California Genealogical Society was established. We hope you enjoy it.
