It is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization that seeks to

The Society offers research services, and a research library, housing reference materials from California, the United States, and around the world.[edit | edit source]

It offers monthly General meetings, which feature a wide range of genealogical topics, and several Interest Group meetings, all of which are open to the general public.[edit | edit source]
