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.

    Guest Speaker: Gene Block
    Topic: Four Main Reasons Why We Hit Brick Walls In Our Research When the Records Are Available
    Gene began tracing his and his wife’s family histories in the mid 1970’s. His youngest daughter came home from junior high school and asked for help with a homework assignment on the subject of immigration. Gene realized for the first time that not only did he not know the countries where his ancestors were born, he did not even know the names of any of his great grandparents. Over many subsequent years of research Gene has observed that genealogists hit ?brick walls? even when the needed records are available. In his presentation Gene will discuss the four main reasons why this occurs. [Click here to view this month's announcement flyer]
