Our Vision:        ALL families connected  

Our Mission:   The purpose of this Society is to educate the general public and members of the Society in genealogical research, and, to preserve, collect, compile, publish and disseminate genealogical data and family history.

Due to the uncertainties of the COVID-19 virus, the Sonoma County Genealogical Society has decided to cancel the March general meeting that was to be held on Saturday, March 21st.

We hope to be able to have this meeting later in the year.

Please check our Calendar to find the latest information about our meetings and events.

The Spring Seminar that was to be held on Saturday, April 18th has also been cancelled.

The presenter, Judy Russell, has agreed to be with us for our 2022 Seminar – thanks Judy!

Stay connected with SCGS through our Facebook group.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Sonoma County Library branches and
