Are you curious who your ancestors were? Are you related to anyone famous? It's never to late to start researching your family. We have a very large collection of reference books, obituaries, and our local newspaper dated back to 1947.
Eggen studio, a local photo studio, donated their large collection of negatives and photos to us which we have indexed so it's easy to see if we may have a picture of your relatives!
This is only a few things that we have to offer to our fellow genealogists. Stop in and our friendly volunteer staff will be happy to assist you to get you started - or better yet, become a member of the SWEET HOME GENEALOGY SOCIETY!
CHECK OUT OUR STORE FOR BOOKS ON SALE: Beyond the Golden Gate, Trouble Shooters Guide to Do-it-Yourself Genealogy, Family Tree Problem Solver, Family Tree Source Book and the Sweet Home Genealogy Society Cook Book.
We are also excited to announce our quarterly "mini-workshops". These workshops are about 3-4 hours long covering one or two topics. Watch our events tab for more details.
Workshops are open to all genealogists - you do not have to be a member to attend.
