Lake County Genealogical Society celebrates 45th year; announces raffle winners

LAKE COUNTY, Calif. — In 2022, the Lake County Genealogical Society celebrates 45 years of preserving local family histories and other valuable Lake County documents.

Throughout those years the society has helped people near and far trace their Lake County roots.

They have and continue to hold informative classes and cemetery tours. Vital records and family histories are the mainstay of their genealogy research library.

The Lake County Genealogical Society is currently seeking a home for it genealogy library in Lakeport, which would be the start and heart of a community archive.

As part of its 45th anniversary celebration, the group held a free raffle. Tickets were available at the Lake County Fair and Pear Festival, and the winning tickets were drawn Oct. 1.

Tom B. filled out a raffle ticket at the L.C. Genealogical Society's booth at the Pear Festival for his 9-year old son. He was delighted to learn that his ticket was the grand prize winner of the genealogy software RootsMagic8 and a family membership good for one year in the Lake County Genealogical Society.

Second place winner Kevin K. won a family membership and Sandi C. won the third prize of an individual membership in the Lake County Genealogical Society.

The Lake County Genealogical Society thanks the community for its wonderful response to the group’s initial effort of gathering signatures of support to create a Lake County Community Archive.
