Genealogical Association of Sacramento, Exhibitor at Family History Day

Please welcome the Genealogical Association of Sacramento as an exhibitor at Family History Day 2011 at the California State Archives.

The Genealogical Association of Sacramento (GAS) was founded in 1976, our Nation’s 200th birthday, with a nucleus of 13 dedicated members. Its objectives are to encourage the research, publication, and preservation of genealogical and historical material; and to instruct and lend assistance to the membership and the public in modern methods of research.  These objectives are accomplished at regular meetings and association-sponsored workshops, lectures, field trips and other educational activities.

The Association offers many educational opportunities to attend seminars and classes in genealogy-related subjects.  There is usually something for everyone at our meetings, from the beginner to the more experienced genealogist.

The Sutro Bus trip sponsord by GAS is set for Wednesday, January 25, 2012. The Sutro Branch of the California State Library will be transferring their collection to a new building on the San Francisco State University campus sometime in the Spring 2012 so they could not have us visit in March, the usual month for this field trip. For reservations, contact Melanie Howard, President, at

Highlights of our activities include:
  • Meetings held on the third Wednesday of each month except July, August and December at 1:00 pm in the Belle Cooledge Library located at 5600 South Land Park Drive, Sacramento
  • A monthly newsletter, The Lamplighter, which is available on our website to members
  • Maintaining a genealogical book collection at the Sacramento Public Library Central Branch, 4th Floor, located at 828 "I" Street.  See the library catalog for the collection holdings.
We look forward to talking with you at Family History Day.
