Shasta Genealogical Society

The Shasta Genealogical Society was founded in 1968 by local genealogists with a passion for discovering their ancestry.  We believe a coordinated effort to provide educational opportunities togenealogical research will result in a significant benefit to all.  We welcome beginners as well as experienced genealogists and encourage them to share their knowledge and discoveries with others.  We learn from and teach each other in our monthly meetings.  Anyone with an interest in tracing their “roots” will find a home with us. Our Mission is to further research in genealogy and to assist all who desire to learn how to do genealogical research.  Our interest in family history brings us together as we share our knowledge.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Website URL: https://shastagen.orgFacebook page:
