Where we Are ~

(Click on state)

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. Click on the state icon for a more detailed look at our county. Our Society is located in Sonora, the county seat.

Office Closed

May 7 our office will be closed to enjoy the great Mother Lode Parade! We will reopen the following Tuesday.

A new fundraising program

Save Mart's SHARES program is transitioning to eSCRIP. This program has been very beneficial to our Society allowing us to keep our annual membership fees at an extremely low level.
The change requires a new sign up, which is easy-peasy. No longer will a card be required - just your phone number. Below are directions for signing up for the new Save Mart SHARES/eSCRIP program:

  3. Type in zip code
  4. Click Continue
  5. Fill in name, email address, make up password (repeat)
  6. Click Continue
  7. Select a school or non-profit – Type in Tuolumne County Genealogical Society
  8. Click the box with the Society’s address (158 Bradford St.)
  9. Click Continue
  10. Type in your phone number (This allows you to just give them your phone number at checkout without a card)
  11. Click Continue
