Event Questions

Suggestions Have you heard a great genealogical talk and think that CGS should invite the speaker to present for us? Is there a particular place you’d like society to consider for a field trip? 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? Please Leave us a Suggestion.

Non-Discrimination Statement

The goal of the California Genealogical Society is to connect people to their family heritage and to promote a spirit of diversity and inclusivity for our members and patrons. The California Genealogical Society does not tolerate discrimination in any form.    

Photography Notice

California Genealogical Society (CGS) may take photographs, audio recordings, and video footage in our library, classrooms or events for historical records or publicity purposes.  If you do not want to be photographed or filmed, it is the individual’s responsibility to ‘opt out’ by notifying the event leader or photographer at the event.
