  3. The Tuolumne County Genealogical Society was formed in Nov 1979 and in Jan 1980 a newsletter was started. In Feb 1980 the library was opened in a room in a realty office. By Jan 1981 there were 72 members and the first quarterly publication called Mother Lode-Ore was produced. In 1982 the name of the quarterly was changed to Golden Roots of the Mother Lode. An agreement with the Tuolumne County Historical Society allowed the Genealogical Society to move its library to their archive building and share their space. In Oct 1983 the library was moved into its present location in the museum building. The Genealogical Society operates the museum three days a week in return for library space. The society currently has 126 members. Library volunteers aid researchers and collect and index county records, including cemetery, courthouse, church and newspaper records. http://www.tcgsonline.org/ View full record

  6. The San Mateo County Genealogical Society traces its roots to a 1982 Genealogy Class taught by Carol Harless through the San Mateo Department of Recreation. As members of the class acquired the skills to search for their ancestors, Ms. Harless encouraged them to form a genealogical society in San Mateo County. Eighteen people gathered for the first meeting where Janet Morrison, was elected President. In order to help people interested in tracing their roots, the Society decided to offer monthly meetings on various topics related to genealogy and family history. The newly formed Society identified establishment of a genealogical library in San Mateo County as their main goal. http://www.smcgs.org/ View full record

  9. The dream of all "homeless" genealogy societies came true for the Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society (SBCGS) in June 1998, when the family of Dr. Melville Sahyun, a local medical pioneer, donated his historic laboratory property to the SBCGS to be used as a non-circulating library for family history research. In 1972, two women placed an ad in the Santa Barbara newspaper, looking for others searching for roots; the response was the origin of the SBCGS. Since then, the society had met in members' homes, a community center, a public library, and churches. The society's "library" began when members, willing to donate their books, kept the books in their homes and carried them to the meetings. By early 1998, the SBCGS library had grown to more than 4,500 books and was housed on jury-rigged shelving in two rented rooms of about 600 sq. ft., along with a computer, photocopier, desk, microfiche reader, six filing cabinets, and an 8' reading table! The library was bursting at the seams; and the society, at 475 members, continued to grow. http://sbgen.org/ View full record

Through newsletter, this web-site and other media it has and will encourage citizen support of historical preservation." The Amador County Historical Society (ACHS) was founded c1944 to gather and preserve the county's rich gold rush history since 1848. ACHS encouraged and persuaded county supervisors to acquire the old Brown family, 2-story home on Court House Hill from family heirs and established the Amador County Museum dedicated on June 18, 1949. The Society soon headquartered there and began gathering and collecting the historical paper, photos, ephemera and artifacts to preserve and display in the museum. In early years the Society operated the museum, and, when the county hired an on-site curator, ACHS held their meetings in another building on the grounds. Though the county owns both the building and collection, ACHS has always been involved or supportive of the museum and its collection. In June 2013, the ACHS officially took over the operation of the museum and mine model exhibit. With volunteer help, the museum is now open on a regular basis. The Society in the late 1970s and early 1980s led a campaign to preserve the old county hospital. In 2010 it helped preserve and acquired half interest in the Amador Central Railroad constructed in 1904. It has an office in downtown Jackson on Main Street. http://amadorcountyhistoricalsociety.org/ View full record
