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.

President’s Letter

If you did not attend our Zoom meeting on Saturday, 3 July 2021, you missed one of the most interesting and informative presentations the Palm Springs Genealogical Society has had in its programming. Ron Gilmore spoke to us on “Murder and Consequences – A Family Story”. Ron began by laying the scene for his story, telling us about the community, showing maps, telling us a bit about the time period and then went into the history of his great-great grandfather and the story of his family, which took place in Northern England, right near the Scottish border. Ron’s research was so extensive that he has written a 46-page document detailing the story.

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 7 August 2021 Sara Cochran will be speaking to us on “Shaky Leaf Syndrome – Using Hints More Effectively”: 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 about 9:15 a.m., which will enable us to get you all signed in and ready for the speaker.

You may contact the president at sunnysondra@gmail.com for more information or to be placed on our invitee list.
