"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.

Our Next Meeting is MONDAY, May 22 in the

WEST Recreation Center at 1 PM

SHARING OUR IMMIGRATION STORY

 

Our next meeting will be Monday, May 22 in the West Rec Center.  It’s time to share your immigration story with others in the Genealogy Club.  Think about a short (2-3 minute) story about your ancestor’s immigration to share.  We’ll go around the room and give everyone an opportunity to tell their story.  It doesn’t have to be recent immigration – I’ll be sharing a story about immigration in the 17th Century!

If you have an item to display that’s associated with your ancestor – bring it! – we’ll have a sharing table for items to be displayed.

We’ll have a computer hooked up to the internet, so if there’s something on the internet related to your immigrant ancestor we’ll be able to find it and display it.

Our June 26 meeting will be on Adoption.  There is no July meeting.  Our August 28 meeting will be our annual meeting on “What’s New on the Internet”.

……………………………

Don’t forget the Sonoma County Genealogical Society regular meeting on May 20 which will focus on Breaking Brick Walls.  We’re all invited to that one (Finlay Center, bag lunch at 12, discussions at 1).
