Welcome to SMCGS
Our SMCGS Library needs YOU! We're getting ready to move, and it's All Hands on Deck. Contact Kara at firstname.lastname@example.org to see how you can help, and watch for our Library Work Day this summer.
We're having a book sale! We have large runs of genealogical journals which were donated to SMCGS. Check them out (plus a few books) here. Many more to come in August!

Finding Records to help document
your Farming Families
with Lisa Gorrell
Lisa Gorrell helps you discover the many record sets that document your farming ancestors, such as land, tax, and probate records. Learn how newspapers and agricultural records add context to their story.
Lisa S. Gorrell is a Certified Genealogist®. She teaches genealogy courses through Applied Genealogy Institute and lectures to genealogy societies. She has served on the board of directors of several genealogy societies and is currently the recording secretary with the Contra Costa Historical Society. She also volunteers at their archives at the History Center in Martinez. Researching farmers has been a passion as her mother descends from generations of farmers.
