WELCOME TO THE SACRAMENTO REGIONAL GENEALOGICAL COUNCIL WEBSITE -
YOUR GATEWAY TO AREA GENEALOGY GROUPS
 
     While in-person Genealogy Activities are not available during this pandemic, many area Genealogy Groups have begun holding virtual or “computer-contact” activities.  Please check out the various genealogy groups listed in the left of this webpage.  Click on the Genealogy Group name to find out what is happening in your location.  The Group name opens a link to or an actual webpage for that group. 
 
     Once the webpage opens, the viewer will find that Genealogy is alive and well during this pandemic.  Some groups have posted a monthly newsletter with helpful research hints, some groups have a posted a notice about a virtual activity or two, and some groups are conducting meeting and events during this time period using video conference services with free live webinars – some open to the public and other for members only.  And membership information is on the website page, if the viewer would like to join the “fun”.
 
     Remember, “sheltering in place” can provide time for genealogy researchers to: organize genealogy documents that have been found; create a timeline on an ancestor or two; and plan the next research trip(s) for later when social isolation is lifted; and even time to write a family story, presentation, or newsletter.  
 
You have a captive audience,
so share your findings in a creative way.
