Society Saturday - What's Happening at Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society for October?

Editor's note: Today's post was written by Sandra Gardner-Benward and Marsha Wise

Pen and calendar in hand ready to mark down all these happenings and events. We wouldn't want you to miss anything going on this month..

NOW, RIGHT NOW!!  - have you visited the North Highland Public Library or the
Arden Dimick Public Library in September?  Still a couple of days left to see the great display windows shouting out Genealogy, Family History Day and Root Cellar SGS - and then they will be gone for another year.

Tuesday October 1
NEW Root Cellar SGS Family History Day Genealogy display window will be ready for viewing for the month of October at the Fair Oaks Public Library. I am sure it will be worth the visit.

Sacramento Archives Crawl - A Passion to Preserve

10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Root Cellar SGS will have an exhibit at the California State Archives in celebration of National Archives Month.  We will be showing off our many publications, and also our own library. If you have not visited our library yet this would be a great time to do it. There will also be other groups at the Archives showing off too.

These are the facilities that are participating in this event. There will be a free bus service to take you from place to place. See the their blog site for more details and hours. Whereever you choose to start, you will pick up a passport and then follow the directions for a day of fun. All Free.........  [hint: if it were me, I would start at the Center for Sacramento History where there is parking available and take the bus from there]

Family History Day at the California State Archives  - blog

1020 'O' Street, Sacramento, CA
Family History Day 2013 Blog - there appears to be a second blog site so make sure you check on both

The schedule is up and ready to be download or printed out. Make your plans.
There will be a syllabus available on the day to purchase ($5) but you need to go to the blog site and request one be put on hold for you. You will pay for it ($5) and pick it up on the day in the exhibit hall.
This is a free day to learn and ask questions. Take advantage.
Did you know. .....  Root Cellar SGS will have a table to show off and also we will be showing off our own library.

Parking is limited downtown. Car Pool or better yet - a great relaxing way of coming for the day is to travel there on lightrail. It lets you right off on Archives Square which is right in front of the California State Archives building. Couldn't ask for too much more than that.

Save the date!
