The Society's Goals are to provide education, fellowship and support to its members and to the community of family history researchers both locally and throughout the world. The corps of officers work hard to provide interesting activities and programs in support of these goals.
MoCoGenSo offers research services to individuals needing information from Monterey County records.
Meetings are held on the First Thursday of each month except July at the Monterey Family History Center, 1024 Noche Buena (corner of Noche Buena and Plumas), in Seaside, CA. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for socializing and research; meetings begin at 7 p.m. The library is open until 9 p.m. on meeting nights. Everyone is welcome!
The Society does not maintain its own library. We contribute
to the collection of the Monterey Family History Center where we meet.
This library houses a DAR book collection, MoCoGenSo book,
CD and computer resources, as well as the Family History files and
microforms normally found in an FHC. MoCoGenSo provides a
digital microfiche/microfilm reader/printer
for our Library patrons. Internet access, including access
to subscription databases, is available at no cost to our members.
The Seaside FHC library is one of the finest genealogical
libraries south of San Bruno.
