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.

    Location: Congregation Beth Emek, 3400 Nevada Court, Pleasanton (click for map).
    Guest Speaker: Diane George
    Topic:Google Search and Beyond
    Google has many tools that can assist you with your genealogy research--tools that go beyond simple searching for ancestors. Learn more aboutthose tools and how they can benefit you! Diane is a native Californian whose ancestors all come from the Azores. She was born in and grew up in Hayward and has remained in the Bay Area since. Diane got serious about genealogy when she retired in 2011, following in the footsteps of her husband, Bill George, who started in earnest after he retired. Both had done some research earlier, but it was a lot harder because certain websites and software did not exist then. Diane is interested in the use of technology for genealogy and in encouraging people to use that technology.
