Coming Events

CLOSED SATURDAY, JULY 1 - TUESDAY, JULY 4 - CELEBRATE THE GIFT OF FREEDOM "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same." --Ronald Reagan

FRIDAY, JUNE 23 - JOIN US FOR IRISH RESEARCH ONLINE - Instructor, Janice Sellers APG - Once upon a time, searching for Irish ancestors required learning the townland of origin, or at least the county, before you could even consider crossing the Atlantic. While that is still helpful, it is now often possible to find a family without that information by using the wealth of records that have gone online in the last couple of years. This class will cover some of the many resources available online for Irish research. Please pre-register at fhcoakland@gmail.com or 510-531-3905.

GENEALOGICAL RESEARCH WORKSHOP – Thursdays - Need some help with your Swedish research? Join our experts on Thursdays between 10A and 4P for some individual assistance. No appointment necessary.
