Bay seniors, when interrogated by their children with the annual question, “What do you want for Father’s Day?” might suggest a gift membership in the California Genealogical Society. Haven’t you noticed how the older we get the more we seem to be interested in our distant predecessors – who they were, how they got here, how they survived Depressions and World Wars. Though the Society specializes in people with California ancestry it is also very helpful for anyone doing family research. Membership is $40. They’re located at 22nd and Broadway in Oakland.
