The Genealogical Association of Sacramento library collection is housed on the 2nd floor of the Sacramento Public Library, Central Branch, 828 "I" Street, Downtown Sacramento.
In our collection at the library we have PEDIGREE CHARTS submitted by early members of G.A.S. To check for the surname you are searching, click on the Pedigree Charts link. It will tell you the volume and page to look for to go right to that surname. At the present time you will have to make an appointment with one of the G.A.S. library volunteers to access the actual charts.
Our collection at the library also has quite a large offering of periodicals published by genealogical groups that are not shown on the saclibrary.org website. There is an index by call number of the issues (not by content) available. Click on this Periodicals Index link to see the list.
The American Ancestors Database is being provided to the Sacramento Public Library courtesy of the
Genealogical Association of Sacramento.
(Check with the desk librarian on the 2nd floor to get the password.)
The following index would be available on this database. You can access the database by visiting the library and using one of their computers. Try to plan your searches in advance because the library computers will "time out".

Families of Ancient New Haven — Completely Re-indexed
This eight-volume, 2,100-page database has been completely re-indexed, increasing the number of name entries from 65,000 to 92,000. The original index was based on a work which only indexed the names of individuals who did not have the same surnames as the featured families. The new all-name index provides many more search results.
Families of Ancient New Haven is an eight-volume work created by Donald Lines Jacobus between 1923 and 1932. These volumes were originally published as New Haven Genealogical Magazine, which was the predecessor of The American Genealogist.
