The Southern California Genealogical Society is a volunteer-supported genealogy society located in Los Angeles County. SCGS's Family Research Library in Burbank holds over 30,000 books, periodicals, maps, manuscripts, DVDs and other genealogical resources. The Society sponsors one of the largest genealogical events in the US, drawing noted speakers from around the country and from our immigrants' homelands. The 46th Annual Southern California Genealogy Jamboree will be held June 5-7, 2015, at the Los Angeles Marriott Burbank Hotel and Convention Center, Burbank, California. On Thursday, June 4th, the weekend kicks off with the Genetic Genealogy: DNA Day Plus! conference.
The Society offers several interest and affiliated groups for ethnic groups, including African American, Irish, German, Italian, Japanese (Nikkei Genealogical Society), French-Canadian Heritage Society of California, and Hispanic (GSHA-CA Genealogical Society of Hispanic America-Southern California. In addition, interest groups for DNA, family history writing, and genealogy software (RootsMagic, Family Tree Maker, Legacy Family Tree and The Master Genealogist) support the many interests of our members.
The 1890 Project will be our Society's legacy for generations of researchers to come. This extensive multi-year project will reconstruct the Los Angeles County portion of the 1890 United States census, which was lost to fire and subsequent water damage. It will be an aggregation of many types of records, including birth, death, marriage, cemetery, tax, immigration, church, and an every-name index of the 1890 Los Angeles Times. The searchable database will help researchers locate their ancestors who resided in or visited Los Angeles County during that crucial year.
