Genealogy Club

Genealogy Club

The Oakmont Genealogy Club is open to all Oakmont residents who are interested in Genealogy and History. We were founded in 2008 and currently have 300 members.    During the pandemic we have been meeting by Zoom.  If you're interested in attending a Zoom meeting, send us an email at oakmontancestry@gmail.com.   Many Oakmont residents have had an interest in genealogy but don’t know where to begin. Our meetings are appropriate for beginning researchers and experienced genealogists; for research in the United States, Europe, or even other areas of the world. Many of our discussions are targeted at the use of free websites on the Internet for genealogical research. Others involve topics such as DNA analysis and dealing with old photographs.   We publish a monthly newsletter which is available if you send your email address to us.   Meeting Details: 4th Monday of each month, except July and December 1 PM Fees: None Contact Information: George McKinney Phone: (707) 5387264 Email: oakmontancestry@gmail.com Website: OakmontGenClub.org
