Our Society endeavors to present educational programs and events which enhance success in the search for ancestors, and the skills for presenting that material. Towards that end, we present an annual workshop and/or seminar, scheduled speakers at our monthly meetings, and mentoring.


Held annually at the Sonora Family History Center on Hillsdale Ave. The date this year is Saturday, October 14, 2017. Given by Catherine (Clemens) Sevenau, this year's workshop will be an all-day Workshop, including a beginner's session in the afternoon. Click here for details.

Monthly Programs

These programs are held each month after a short business meeting of the Society. Click here to see the program list.

TCGS Volunteers will be available 30 minutes before the general meeting in the library foyer to help you get started with genealogy, to organize your research and to overcome brick walls. If you are having difficulties, please come early and get some personal (1 on 1) help. If the Volunteer on duty cannot help you, he/she can direct you where to go for additional help.

Special Interest Groups:

THE TECH COMPUTER GROUP - This is a special interest group that meets every other odd month. It is always on the same day as the General Meeting and in the same room. The time is 12pm. We discuss subjects having to do with the computer, software and any problems you may be having. We do not discuss your genealogy. Please come and join us. Bring lunch if you would like to. This was a screen clip from a meeting last year ~ a great presentation on all the ins and outs of searches on the web along with webinars for genealogists.

THE WRITER'S GROUP of the Tuolumne County Genealogical Society meets at 12 noon on the even numbered months, except December, at the Tuolumne County Library on Greenley Road. It is also on the same day as the General Meeting and in the same room. All members are welcome to attend.

More on the Writer's Group cont'd from home page:

. . . various types of printing and publishing. The best part of coming is learning about the many different and interesting stories our members have to tell about their family. There is a core group of members attending each meeting, although some people just come for one or two meetings looking for specific answers to their questions. Whether you want to come often or seldom, all are welcome. Since the meeting is at noon many people bring their lunch. Please feel free to join us.
