The mission of the San Luis Obispo County Genealogical Society is to encourage interest in family history and genealogy, to preserve genealogical materials, and to provide instruction in accepted and effective research techniques.

We invite anyone interested in genealogy to join us in our General Meetings, Classes, Special Interest Groups, and Libraries.

For those of you out of our area, If you do not live locally you can follow the links to our San Luis Obispo County Resources, get in touch with our experienced researchers, and see the many benefits enjoyed by the members of our Society.

Our Resource page includes County Records databases for Land and Tax Records, Original Land Plats, Naturalization Records, Voter Registrations, Cemetery Records, Headstone photos, Probate Court Records, and Civil Case abstracts.

We meet bi-monthly in February, April, June, October, and December (even-numbered months except August), usually on the 1st Saturday of the month.

We alternate our General Meetings between online via Zoom and in person at the IOOF Hall, address below.  Be sure to check our calendar for the latest date & location.
