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.

General Meeting -- Feb 9, 2012

Coming up this month will be professional genealogist, Janice Sellers, who will speak about Online Newspapers.  Her summary is:


Using Online Newspapers for Genealogical Research
      Newspapers are valuable in genealogical research because you can find information about births, deaths, marriages, moves, business, naturalizations, court cases, and more. Millions of pages of the world's newspapers are now accessible online, but there is no one place to find them all. This class gives an overview of what isavailable online and techniques to help improve your chances of finding information about your relatives.

Janice M. Sellers is a professional genealogist who specializes in newspaper and Jewish research. She is the editor of two genealogy journals and a member of APG, Genealogical Speakers Guild, San Francisco Bay Area Jewish Genealogical Society, and CGS. She has volunteered at Oakland Regional Family History Center for eleven years.







The meeting begins at 7 pm and the location is the LDS Church at 1360 Alberta Way, Concord.  All are welcomed!
