Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains newsletters and research material from the San Diego Genealogical Society, as well as a book detailing the history of the Clark, Cook, and Weld families.
The San Diego Genealogical Society was founded in 1946 by Mrs. Alicia P. Mayer and a small group of people interested in genealogy. Mrs. Mayer, the first President, stated the main purposes of the Society were "to promote general interest in the related fields of genealogy, history and heraldry," to assist members with their research, and to establish a genealogical library. Membership grew from the original 25 charter members to a total of 39 by the end of the first year. The San Diego Genealogical Society was incorporated in 1966 as a non-profit, 501(c)(3), California corporation and the official seal was developed.
