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.

Searching Ancestry for Free!

This past week, Ancestry.com had a wonderful article, "Ten Free Data Collections to Get You Started With Your Family History" on their blog written by Anne Gillespie Mitchell, listing the databases that can be searched for free.  All you need to do is register on the Ancestry.com site.

I knew about the 1880 and 1940 census records, but did not know about the others on the list. Here's a chance to do some searching at home. If you find anything that needs the subscription databases, you can always visit the Concord Family History Center to view them on their computers.

Happy searching!
