Welcome to the CCCGS blog.

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.

Genealogy at the Peddler's Faire

Membership Drive at the Peddler's Faire
Saturday, August 6, 2011 found several members staffing a booth at the Peddler's Faire in downtown Martinez.  They had a fun day, talking to hundreds of passerby's about genealogy in general and our society in specific.

Many people said they didn't even know we existed.  That is why we are now making an effort to publicize our society and happenings.  Talking face-to-face with people is always a great way to let people know who you are and what you do.

We handed out our brochure and the flyer for the October 15th Digging for Your Roots.  We also had a signup sheet for 3 months of our online newsletter, Diablo Descendants.

Hopefully we will see some new faces at our next meeting, Thursday, September 8, 2011 at the LDS Church,  1360 Alberta Way, Concord.
