All About

Logo_100_93The Monterey County Genealogy Society, Inc. is a non-profit, tax-exempt organization serving the  Central Coast of California.  Membership benefits include  monthly meetings,  a bimonthly  newsletter, Society-sponsored activities, including an annual conference, and various publications.

The Society’s Goals are to provide education, fellowship and support to its members and to the community of family history researchers both locally and throughout the world. Our officers  work hard to provide interesting activities and programs in support of these goals.

MoCoGenSo offers research service to individuals needing information from Monterey County  records.

Meetings are held on the First Thursday of each month except July at the Monterey Family History Center, 1024 Noche Buena (corner of Noche Buena and Plumas), in Seaside, CA.  Doors open at  6:15 p.m. for socializing and research; meetings begin at 7 p.m.  The library is open  until 9 p.m. on meeting nights.  Everyone is welcome!

The Society does not maintain its own library. We contribute to the collection of the Monterey Family History Center where we meet.  This library houses a DAR book collection, MoCoGenSo books, CD and computer resources, as well as the Family History files and microfilms normally found in an FHC.  MoCoGenSo provides a digital microfiche/microfilm reader/printer for our Library patrons.  Internet access, including access to subscription databases, is available at no cost.

The Monterey FHC library is one of the finest genealogical libraries south of San Bruno.

The FHC is open Tuesday and Wednesday, 9 a.m.-9 p.m.; Friday 9 a.m.-1 p.m. and Saturday by appointment, as well as on Society meeting nights, the first Thursday of each month except July.  All are welcome.

    Question: Family Search catalog has identified microfilm ID#990521 (Church of Scotland Parish Church of Dunnet (Caithness) Scotland, Vol 1and 2, 1751-1862 for me. Do I order that through you? I will need to view it at the History Center, of course.
