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.

Follow Friday: 20 Questions You Can Use to Capture Grandma's Story, Family Search Blog

FamilySearch.org's blog has wonderful ideas for researching and gathering your family's stories. A great one was written by Paul Mauta called "20 Questions You Can Use to Capture Grandma's Story."

The article was probably geared towards young people and following his advice would be a great way to connect with your grandmother.  However, I was thinking that if your grandparents have already died, that these same questions could be answered by yourself.  It is just as important that your story be told as well, including those stories of your youth.

So take a look at the list of questions and begin to tell your story, too!
