Donations

Donations make a difference for SMCGS.

Membership dues, and workshop and seminar fees do not cover all SMCGS expenses. In addition to these sources of income, donations help cover what is needed to pay for our website hosting and updating, data storage for our physical and online records, space rental for meetings, classes/workshops, and library, library cataloging software, and for other educational programs and special events as well as to inform people of our resources. 

We welcome and appreciate any and all donations, of any amount. Please consider making a donation to support SMCGS goals:

  • to preserve and index local records
  • to offer quality genealogical  education
  • to support a community of genealogists
  • to provide a variety of genealogical resources covering San Mateo County, the US and the world
