TCGS Membership

Your membership supports the Tuolumne County Genealogical Society’s mission to encourage an interest in genealogy through its programs and workshops. One of the benefits of membership include a bi-monthly newsletter, Gold Diggers loaded with helpful articles for searching for our ancestors, useful links and just interesting news pertaining to genealogy.

Members may enjoy monthly programs, an annual workshop, individual help for beginners, Genealogical Society’s library checkout privileges, use of subscription websites such as Ancestry.com at our Museum, and an opportunity to participate in our annual trip to The Family History Center in Salt Lake City, Utah. Additionally, in May, our general meeting is when we have our Annual Election. It becomes a highlight with a potluck luncheon enjoyed by all our members. We top of the year each December with a Christmas Brunch at a local establishment.

Membership is open to anyone interested in general genealogy, as well as California and Tuolumne County genealogy and history. Membership dues are payable on the yearly anniversary date of joining. Visitors are welcome! Come check us out.
