Bring a “Potluck” Dish to Share!

The 2023 CGS Genie Awards will be presented on Saturday, June 10, celebrating the outstanding work of our volunteers during the 2022 National Genealogical Society Conference in Sacramento. Our volunteers will be recognized following the monthly 10 a.m. CGS Board Meeting. On the agenda is a potluck lunch (bring a favorite dish!) and a short presentation by Maureen Hanlon about 1898 Spanish American war records. The festivities will take place at the CGS Library, 2021 Broadway, Suite LL2, Oakland, CA. Parking is available on the street and behind the Bruener Building. The CGS Library is easily accessible from the 19th Street BART station. All CGS members are welcome! Questions? Contact Kathleen Beitiks kbeitiks@californiaancestors.org

We are just three blocks from the 19th Street BART Station.
