Interested in finding your San Francisco ancestors (pre- and post-1906)? Looking for Gold Rush pioneers or researching family homes? Whether you’re just beginning or have been searching for years, join the conversation with us at monthly meetings led by a genealogist from the California Genealogical Society as we uncover vital records, view historical photographs and maps, examine old newspapers and manuscripts, and learn how to use online resources. Our core research guide is Nancy Peterson's Raking the Ashes: Genealogical Strategies for Pre-1906 San Francisco Research.

Bring your questions or your expertise and we can help each other. We may not find all of the answers, but we will pool our resources and learn together. There will also be presentations on specialized topics on some of the dates.

Learn more about History and Genealogy through the wealth of resources available at the Library.
