Welcome to the website of the Palm Springs Genealogical Society, a tax-exempt 501c3 organization. Your gift to the Society is tax-exempt.

Our meetings are held at the Palm Springs Library Center, 300 S. Sunrise Way, on the first Saturday of each month, September through May. Meetings are held in the Library Learning Center at 10:00 a.m. You do not need to be a member to attend. Due to the pandemic and the fact the Library is still closed, meetings are held the first Saturday of each month September through May via Zoom. Contact Sondra (sunnysondra@gmail.com) for more information and to be added to the distribution list.

President’s Letter

Christine Cohen was our speaker at the monthly meeting on 5 June 2021. Her topic was “Read the Instructions: Details in the U.S. Census You May Be Missing”, which was quite comprehensive. I must admit, even after 15 years of research, there were many features, columns and abbreviations of which I was unaware. Christine’s provided handout will certainly be a valuable tool in future research.

During this pandemic hiatus we will continue our Zoom meetings through the summer months, also, the first Saturday of each month at 9:30 a.m.

On 3 July 2021 Ron Gilmore will be speaking to us on “Murder and Consequences – A Family Story”. The title certainly sounds inviting: we hope you will join us.

Our face-to-face meetings are still on hold as we wait for permission to once again meet at the Palm Springs Public Library.

If you plan to join us next month via Zoom, PLEASE, PLEASE sign in BEFORE 9:30 a.m. You may contact the president at sunnysondra@gmail.com for more information or to be placed on our invitee list.
