To assist people interested in genealogy to research their roots by providing educational opportunities and research materials and tools.
To compile and make available local information of interest to genealogy researchers.
The Society maintains a genealogical research library that is located in the Calaveras County library in San Andreas, CA. These books are available to the public for use in the library only and cannot be checked out. To assist you when visiting our research section, a map of the stacks has been prepared.
The CGS publishes a quarterly newsletter “The Froghorn” for its members and invites guest speakers to address the monthly meetings to educate the members on topics relevant to genealogical research.
The CGS also holds workshops that feature well known genealogical experts as speakers with the workshops open to both members and guests and has two social meetings each year so the members and their families can spend time getting to know one another.
We invite you to join CGS by printing and filling out the application form and mailing it with the appropriate amount to the CGS address shown on the membership form.
FAMILIES OUR MEMBERS ARE RESEARCHING
Let's collaborate! See the surnames of families our members are working on, get in touch, share, discover, problem solve. To protect privacy, only
the member number is identified. No other contact information is provided to those inquiring. Inquiries will be forwarded to members through our Surname Index Committee to protect your privacy and limit spam. This is a free service provided to fellow researchers.
Contact us via CGS EXPRESS if you find a surname that you are researching and would like to contact the member who is also doing the same research.
