The Tuolumne County Genealogical Society was formed in November, 1979, and in January, 1980, a newsletter was started. One month later in February the library was opened in a room in a realty office.
By January, 1981 there were 72 members and the first quarterly publication calledMother Lode-Orewas produced. In 1982 the name of the quarterly was changed toGolden Roots of the Mother Lode.
An agreement with the Tuolumne County Historical Society in 1983 allowed the Genealogical Society to move its library to their archive building and share their space. That October the library was moved into its present location in the Museum building. The Genealogical Society operates the museum three days a week in return for library space.
Currently our Society has 156 members. Many library volunteers aid researchers and collect and index county records, including cemetery, courthouse, church and newspaper records. The Library has an amazing collection of records which visitors are encouraged to review.
