Coming Events

December 15– January 2: The Oakland Family History Center will be closed for the Christmas holidays. We will be open on Wednesday, December 14 on our normal 10:00 AM to 9:00 PM schedule. We will be closed from Thursday December 15 through Monday January 2, with our re-opening on Tuesday January 3 at 10:00 AM. Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Happy Holidays to all!

December 15 – Films in Oakland Family History Center: If you previously ordered films that are currently in the library you should log into your on-line account at www.familysearch.org/films and check the film status. Films will not be automatically extended beyond the holidays. If the film is, for example, scheduled to be returned to Salt Lake during our Christmas closure, you will need to renew the film on-line in order to use it in January

2012 Classes: By popular request, the California Genealogical Society and the Oakland Family History Center are once again combining forces to offer a new series of Internet Genealogy classes. This series will highlight the tricks and tips for using one or two internet sites in each class. Some sites being scheduled are Ancestry, Fold3, Genealogy Bank, and FamilySearch. Watch or Classes page for details; class schedule will be posted before year-end, and classes will begin at the end of January
