We are a genealogy group that serves Southern Alameda County, California, USA. We have a general meeting, usually on the fourth Tuesday of each month except for December. Dues are very reasonable.

Our next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, July 22nd, 2014, 6pm at the San Lorenzo Village Homeowner's Association at 377 Paseo Grande, San Lorenzo, CA 94580.

This July 22nd the presentation will be by Bill George, showing http://familysearch.org. This is a rather unheralded free web site that rivals ancestry.com. This LDS web site has a one-world family tree and billions of source records to search. There are some ins-and-outs to it, but there are many useful features. You need to register (free, of course), to get the full benefit. As an example, they completed the indexing of the entire 1940 census (134 million individuals) with images, all of which are searchable and available (for free) at https://familysearch.org/1940census. See if you can find your parents, if they were alive in 1940... https://familysearch.org/1940census. See you on the 24th (the fourth Tuesday of the month, 6pm).

Please note the early starting time (6pm).
