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: "Create a Legacy Plan"

As we age, we begin to worry about what will become of our genealogical research, especially if we have no children who want to take it over.

FlipPal, the company who makes a portable scanner, has blog articles and this week there is a wonderful one written by Mary V. Danielsen about how to create a legacy plan.  I hope you will find this useful!

Follow Friday - NGS To Have Live Streaming

This week there has been exciting news in the genealogy world.  The National Genealogical Society (NGS) is having their conference in Richmond, Virginia this May. If you think that is too far to attend, you can attend right from your home.

There will be live-streaming of some of the sessions. The cost isn't too bad. $65 for four sessions if you are a member or $80 if you are not.

There are two tracks to choose from and you can sign up for both tracks at another discount.  And if you can't watch it live, you will have the ability to watch it as many times as you want for 90 days.

More details about the deal here:

It's a great deal and I plan to sign up to listen to Elizabeth Shown Mills, Thomas Jones, Pamela Boyer Sayer, Sharon Tate Moody, and Michael Hait in track 1.
