The purpose of this blog is to promote the Contra Costa County Genealogical Society by announcing upcoming events and reporting on past events. In doing so, I hope it will encourage all who are interested to attend any of our events and meetings, and share in our enthusiasm of genealogical research.
On August 9, 2010 this blog was born. Members of the Board of Directors of the Contra Costa County Genealogical Society here in Concord, California thought that forming a blog would help us get our message out to the world (or at least the surrounding area), acquire more members (we could always use more), and share the love of genealogy (who doesn't love it?). We got off to a good start, but then "life got in the way" and blog posts were infrequent.
Now we're have picked up the frequency of posts by writing about upcoming speakers, the meetings themselves, and other events we have participated in. Other genealogical topics will be written about in the future. Stay tuned for our next year of blogging!
