ROOTS TRACER May 2016 issue


We welcome you to the website of the Livermore-Amador Genealogical Society (L-AGS). Genealogy - also known as Family History Research - is a worldwide hobby pursuit. Our society serves the Tri-Valley cities of Livermore, Pleasanton and Dublin in the southeastern portion of Alameda County, in the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area of California.

L-AGS was founded in 1977. We cordially help people of all skill levels to improve their knowledge and understanding of their ancestors and their connections to historical events. Although our name says Livermore-Amador, our members provide expertise in nearly all aspects of family history exploration from 17th-century colonization through research of twentieth-century immigration from all ancestral continents.

Our organization has extracted many cemetery, church, census and other records about the Tri-Valley and they are available for viewing either in published books or in free, online databases. You are welcome to browse these records by clicking on the "Local Records" or "Publications" buttons on the left. Current and past issues of our societies quarterly publication, "The ROOTS TRACER", can also be viewed by clicking on a button.

    Ralph Severson will begin his talk with general updates on FamilySearch, which continues to expand at the rate of about 10 million names per week. After the general update, Ralph will focus on several parts of FamilySearch that are used relatively little but have serious value to researchers. Ralphs early involvement in genealogy began at age 14. Ralph taught genealogy classes while at Brigham Young University and presently serves as Director of the Oakland FamilySearch Library and as Northern California Family History Area Adviser for the LDS Church. Ralph is the primary instructor for classes at the Oakland FamilySearch Library. Portugal-Azores and Southern States are Ralphs research specialties.
