As a long time resident of this state, I have family and friends from one end to the other. It is also nice to meet new faces along the way.
This Society blog keeps track of places and faces through out the state and makes it a super place to keep track of for activities and events. The society is also what created this blog so they go hand in hand. Being located semi central of the state is also an advantage for them to be able to learn and have so much available to us.
This year I am hoping to pop in at one of their meetings when I go visit family in Sonoma and Marin Counties.
So if your doing California Research check them out and if not check them out anyway may give your group ideas or help you format a group.
