Calendar of Meetings & Events for October 2015
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 issures of our societies quarterly publication, "The ROOTS TRACER", can also be viewed by clicking on a button.
Note: A L-AGS docent is available at the Pleasanton City Library Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. or by appointment,
e-mail: docents.chair@L-AGS.org. The library is located at 400 Old Bernal Avenue in Pleasanton.

Topic: Bring out the Pitchforks! Hunting the witches in your woodpile
L-AGS members Joy Cohn and Tom Mathews have discovered that they are cousins but, better yet, have learned that their ancestors faced off against each other during the darkest days in Puritan New England’s history. Tom and Joy will discuss the Salem Witch Trials, touching on the history behind the trials their causes, the executions and the families of both the victims and the accusers. They will also explore what happened to those families after the trials; where they went and what became of them. [Click here to view this month's
