Genealogy Club

Come to the weekly meetings of the Genealogy Club of Humboldt State University and learn the tools that will help you learn more about your forebears. If your parents or grandparents were foreign born, we’ll discover together just how to go about researching Czechoslovakian, Colombian or Hong Kong records. If you have early American roots, find out who fought in the Civil War or the American Revolution. Learn how to obtain military pension records, cemetery records, marriage, birth and death records. Discover what information can be gleaned from wills, tax lists, deeds and land bounty records. What can you expect to find at county archives and historical societies? Who has already done genealogical research on your family?
