Genealogy Classes

A series of genealogy classes is offered by the San Diego Genealogical Society on a continual and revolving basis. Interested persons may join the classes at any time. Classes are free and open to the public. Class size is limited and advance registration is requested (but not required).  To register, or for more information, please contact us.
Classes are designed for a variety of research levels and emphasize best practices, from getting started to intermediate and advanced level research, and are often used as a refresher. Attendees are encouraged to bring a notebook (for taking notes and holding handouts) and any records they already have on themselves, their parents and grandparents.

Classes are held before the regular monthly Society meeting. Attendees are welcome and encouraged to stay for the Society meeting and presentations.
The monthly Society meeting is on the 2nd Saturday of the month (March through October) at St. Andrew's Lutheran Church, 8350 Lake Murray Blvd. (at the corner of Jackson Drive), San Diego, California.

The topics for this series of classes are:

  1. Genealogy and Your MAC
  2. Census Records
  3. Vital Records
  4. Computer Resources
In addition to Saturday classes, additional classes on a variety of subjects are offered on varying days of the week at different locations around San Diego. These educational resources are available to SDGS members and the public. Refer to the SDGS Calendar of Events on this website for dates, times and topics.
