The Genealogical Society was founded in 1987 as a Non-profit Corporation and we are affiliated with the Library system of Chula Vista, California.
This Society draws members from the city of Chula Vista and surrounding communities of southern San Diego County.
We meet regularly at library facilities. All our meetings and programs are open to the public and we encourage membership in our Society to gain access to the wealth of knowledge and experience found here.
Our motto is "We dig our Ancestors" and we have fun. We have a research group which gets into the serious problems with Ancestors who just don't want to be found. We have a computer group which uses the library's computer lab for hands-on online research assistance. And from time to time we have field trips to the Family History Center, the National Archives and other hi-quality libraries with Genealogical assets.
The purpose of this Society is to promote general interest in the related fields of genealogy, history, and heraldry by individual and group effort.
These shall include, but not be limited to:
• Encouraging the exchange of group information.
• Coordinating research activities.
• Educating members to assist others in research.
• Acquiring and organizing research materials.
• Acquisition of books, manuscripts, and materials for the Chula Vista Public Library.
Society members are available for assistance at the Chula Vista Civic Center main branch on most Wednesdays from 11 am - 1 pm in the Family History section.
