"To support the study of family genealogy by Oakmont residents"

Welcome to the Oakmont Genealogy Club 

Description of the Club

The Oakmont Genealogy Club is designed for any Oakmont resident who is interested in exploring family genealogy - whether you have years of experience or just want to get started.  Our meetings are held monthly, and will include both a general presentation of interest and breakout sessions so participants can focus on an area of greatest interest.  Most meetings include a discussion group for new researchers.

We meet the fourth Monday of each month at 1:00 in the West Recreation Center.

VERY IMPORTANT ANNOUCEMENT REGARDING OUR WEBSITE

Somehow we lost control of the address of our old website (if you click on it, it leads to a gun club!).  Our new website address is OAKMONTGENCLUB.ORG.  Please change your bookmarks.  Thank you.

Heritage Societies

There is no December meeting

Our next meeting will be Monday, January 22 in the West Rec Center at 1 PM. 

Our January 22 meeting will be on Heritage Societies – we will have an invited speaker from the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) and a member of the club who will speak about the Sons of the American Revolution (SAR).  There will be more information on this in the January newsletter.

There are numerous such societies.  Many are associated with early immigrants (Jamestown, Mayflower), some with other wars (Civil War descendants), and even some that are at least partly humorous (Descendants of Lady Godiva).

FamilySearch will now require a sign-in

Our best free website for genealogy research, FamilySearch.org, will begin to require you to have a username and password beginning December 13.  They are still a free website.  They stated that this is needed because of their agreements with some of the sources of their data.
