Our History
The Tuolumne County Genealogical Society was formed in Nov 1979 and in Jan 1980 a newsletter was started. In Feb 1980 the library was opened in a room in a realty office. By Jan 1981 there were 72 members and the first quarterly publication called Mother Lode-Ore was produced. In 1982 the name of the quarterly was changed to Golden Roots of the Mother Lode. An agreement with the Tuolumne County Historical Society allowed the Genealogical Society to move its library to their archive building and share their space. In Oct 1983 the library was moved into its present location in the museum building. The Genealogical Society operates the museum three days a week in return for library space. The society currently has 126 members. Library volunteers aid researchers and collect and index county records, including cemetery, courthouse, church and newspaper records.
