[CA--SCGS] The SCGS Library Will Remain Closed Through the End of June 2020

Due to the continuing concerns over Covid-19 and our efforts to prevent and slow the spread of the virus by maintaining social distancing, the SCGS library will be remain closed to patrons through the end of June 2020 and into the first part of July 2020. 

We do have an excellent research team available to assist you with your research. Go to our SCGS website to order services, at SCGS Research Team Assistance

We at SCGS are following the guidelines as mandated by the County of Los Angeles. Currently, the county is aiming at a reopen date of July 4, 2020.  We at SCGS are hopeful that the SCGS library will reopen on Tuesday, July 7, 2020. However, that decision will be based on data and science models as offered by the county. 

We will keep you updated when additional information is available. 

We will continue to work with all of our SCGS Interest Groups (Ethnic, Computer Software, Writer's Group, and DNA) to organize online meetings for the month of June and beyond (as needed). We will post those updates once each group has finalized their plans.

Please note that our Jamboree Webinar Extension Series will go on as planned. We look forward to 'seeing' you online!

Our Jamboree committee continues to discuss our plans for the 2021 Jamboree conference. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Frequently genealogists will focus strictly on the US Census records and forget that many of the US states and territories conducted their own census at some point. Learn which states and territories have these amazing records, how to access them, and how to incorporate them into your genealogy research.

Thomas MacEntee is a genealogy professional based in the United States, specializing in the use of technology and social media to improve genealogy research and as a way to connect with others in the family history community.
