It is a pleasure to introduce the Fresno County Genealogical Society as an exhibitor at Family History Day at the California State Archives.

The Fresno County Genealogical Society was established in 1965 to foster and support genealogical and historical interest in Fresno and the surrounding communities. The Society collects and preserves genealogical and historical data, and aids society members and the public in compiling genealogies and genealogical research.

The California History and Genealogy Room was created in 1993 as a cooperative effort of the Fresno County Public Library and the Fresno County Genealogical Society. The Room is stocked with approximately 30,000 books and pamphlets, 5,000 microforms, 300 CD-ROMs; an extensive obituary file; computer access to Ancestry Library Edition, the Newspaper Archive, and other databases; and trained volunteers to assist. Click on the link above to read detailed descriptions of the Room's holdings.

The Fresno County Genealogical Society presents monthly educational talks by speakers with expertise in the many areas of genealogical research. The meetings are free and open to the public. Visitors are encouraged to attend. Additional learning opportunities offered by the Society include “how-to” classes and interest groups.
