San Francisco Bay Area Genealogy Calendar

Welcome to the new home of the San Francisco Bay Area Genealogy Calendar! Every month, a list of genealogy and family history events occurring within a 40-mile radius of San Francisco will be posted. The calendar was created and originally hosted by Stephen Danko on Steve's Genealogy Blog and then moved to the California Genealogy Society and Library. Now it has made its way back to San Francisco, and Sutro Library is excited to be not only a physical hub of resources but also a virtual hub for the community.

With the transition, there are a few minor changes. The calendar will cover events within a 40 mile radius (instead of 75 miles), which still includes Napa, Fairfield, Antioch, and San Jose. Please email sutro@library.ca.gov the following information regarding your event: title, date, time, cost, location, and a brief description (1-3 sentences). If possible, please send a Word doc with all events for the year (or as many as you have planned). If events are planned month-to-month, then we ask that they are submitted by the 25th of each month. We want to display three months' worth of events: past, current, and future.

Let us know if you have any questions by emailing us or calling us at (415) 469-6100.
