SDGS Library in El Cajon

One of the "hidden treasures" of San Diego genealogy repositories is the San Diego Genealogical Society library in El Cajon. The library web page (with an online catalog link) describes it as:

"The extensive collection of the San Diego Genealogical Society Library is one of the major genealogical resources in San Diego County. Housed in approximately 2200 square feet, the SDGS Library is located at 1050 Pioneer Way, Suite E in El Cajon, California.

"The library is accessible to members 24 hours a day, 365 days per year. Unrestricted access to the SDGS Library is a benefit of Society membership.

"The Library is staffed and open to the public on Thursdays from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m."

If you are a San Diego area researcher, and have not availed yourself of the resources at this library, I urge you to visit it at your convenience. They have a fine selection of surname and locality books, and an excellent collection of genealogy periodicals. There are also several file cabinets of vertical files - papers donated to the society that may contain unique family information.

SDGS has recently revamped their web page - there is a lot of great information on this web site - take a look at it!
