Federation of Genealogical Societies 

Mission / Purpose

We are a community-based volunteer genealogical society now celebrating over 41 years of helping you discover your family history. SCGS is a non-profit organization with the dual goals of education in genealogical research and the preservation of Solano County History. We have expert volunteers who can assist any level of researcher with making genealogical connections throughout the world! 
We are currently conducting all of our meetings on Zoom. Our Speaker Series meetings start at 11 a.m. on the first Saturday of the month from February through June and from September through December. There are no Speaker Series Meetings in Janurary, July and August. 
Discussion Group meetings are held on the  second Wednesday of every month, from 10 a.m. until noon. Discussions are informal groups gathered to exchange or learn new ideas about each interesting topic.

Most of our Speaker Series and Discussion Groups have detailed handouts with resources and references for attendees.

We  also have Special Interest Groups (SIGs). They are small groups of our members that are interested in meeting on a regular basis to share information and encourage each other’s research about a single topic, such as German or Irish genealogy. These SIG groups are meeting on Zoom, too.
