L-AGS Bylaws & Standing Rules


The Livermore-Amador Genealogical Society was formed in June 1977 by students of a Livermore Adult Education Class. On June 27, 1977 the charter members met to adopt by-laws and the organization was founded.

Purposes

Our membership has a combined experience of many hundreds of years in the field of genealogy. All of us want to share our experience with you, and in turn to learn from your experience. Through cooperation, the efforts of each individual are multiplied many fold.


Meetings

General Membership Meetings (Check our Home Page for more details)
Society general meetings are held at 7:30 p.m. on the second Monday of each month at Congregation Beth Emek, 3400 Nevada Court, Pleasanton. Programs have featured genealogists, local historians, local authors, and local business people who can offer insights into the history of the Livermore-Amador Valley. Some of our more popular meetings are those in which members share their recent genealogy breakthroughs with the audience, or seek help from the audience on research "brick walls" that have them stumped. For information about programs at the meetings, contact the Program Chairperson.

The Tri-Valley The Master Genealogist Users' Group
The Master Genealogist Group meets monthly on the third Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon at 7077 Koll Center Parkway, Suite 110, Pleasanton. This group focuses on the powerful software used by professional genealogists. There are topics for discussion and time for practice and questions and answers. For more information, contact the TMG Leader.

Other Activities and Resources

Local Cemeteries
The Society has published two surveys of local cemeteries. Livermore Cemeteries contains over 5800 names of people buried in the four cemeteries of Livermore: Roselawn, St. Michael's Catholic, Memory Gardens and Oak Knoll, a pioneer cemetery that has been abandoned. Cemeteries of Pleasanton and Dublin, California, published in January 1990, contains 4668 entries from three cemeteries: St. Augustine's Catholic and Memorial Gardens in Pleasanton, and the Dublin pioneer cemetery, which dates from 1859. It also contains records of burials from Graham Mortuary, Pleasanton, 1904-1923. On our Web site, we have published 358 records of a different mortuary, Robert Graham Mortuary of Livermore, from the years 1878-1887 and 1893.

A listing of all our publications with descriptions and prices is on this web site.

The above publications and other databases are searchable from the search engine on our home page.

Seminars
The Livermore-Amador Genealogical Society, in cooperation with the Livermore and Pleasanton Latter-Day Saint Churches, has offered a one-day genealogy seminar since 1991. Carefully selected classes and workshops are presented by qualified teachers. The classes range from those for the beginner to some for the expert researcher. The very newest research information to the newest computer technical knowledge is presented. Seminar information will be posted on our Coming Events Page.

The Roots Tracer
The Livermore Roots Tracer is our quarterly publication distributed to all our members, local libraries and other genealogical societies. It has been designed to provide research tips, news of Society activities, and information from other societies throughout the nation. Members are encouraged to write articles for The Roots Tracer and are invited to submit queries and genealogical aids. An archive of current and past issues is available on this web site.

The L-AGS Genealogy Library in the City of Pleasanton Library
The Society, in cooperation with the City of Pleasanton Library, maintains the largest collection of genealogical materials in the Valley, numbering over 1000 books, over 200 CD-ROMs, the California Death Index on microfiche for 1940-1994, Federal Census microfilms (1860-1920) for the Pleasanton-Livermore part of Alameda County, and genealogical periodicals from other parts of the country.  The genealogy book collection is listed in the library's on-line catalog. In addition, there are two computers dedicated to genealogical research near the Genealogy Collection. Genealogy docents are on duty at the library each Wednesday during the hours 10 am until 1 pm. Appointments may be arranged via email to: docents.chair@L-AGS.org
