Where we Are ~

map of california and tuolumne county Our county, pronounced “too AH loo me,” is located on the Eastern side of the Great San Joaquin Valley, in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains. We are about an hour from Yosemite, which straddles our county and the one next to ours. We are located in Sonora, the county seat.

What we are ~

We are a society incorporated as a 501(c)(3) organization, thus qualifying for tax deductible donations. We operate within the structure of a corporation with a Board of Directors and Officers. We have approximately 150 members, many of whom work tirelessly in our library. It is a space shared with the Tuolumne County Historical Society on alternating days.

What a Seminar that was!

Susan introducing Lynne

Here our President Susan Strope is introducing Lynne Storm who presented "Organizing your Stuff" on Sept. 14th at our monthly meeting. She has a wealth of information and is so willing to share it in all things "genealogy." However, this short seminar on organization was so special for those of us just beginning and even those who have the box full of notes on scraps of paper! It has really whet my appetite for "getting it together!"

If you couldn't attend her presentation on the 14th, you'll want to be sure to check out her seminar at the October 24th Workshop. She has many priceless tips on organizing your research.

We have had a lot of changes in our website, the biggest change being the ability to use PayPal and online forms. Do you have a "wish list" for our website? We welcome your comments.

Meanwhile, I hope you will continue to check in and see what's new. Any questions, please feel free to email them to Thank you!

Coming Soon ~
