Genealogical Society Announces New Presentation

LIVERMORE, California—August 30, 2011—The Livermore-Amador Genealogical Society (L-AGS) announces the publication of Early Records of the Presbyterian Church of Pleasanton, California.

L-AGS recently finished transcribing and indexing nearly 500 original handwritten records of the Pleasanton Presbyterian Church from 1891 to 1942. The new publication includes a register of baptisms, marriages, and deaths, as well as a detailed index. It also includes a list of pastors through the ages, church history and transcription of the church’s 1876 founding documents. This publication should be of interest to family historians conducting Alameda County genealogy research.

Richard Finn served as project leader and worked with Emily Bailey and Marilyn Cutting to transcribe the historical records. George Anderson created an index and served as publisher. The cover art is from a 1995 watercolor painted by Charlotte Severin, an award-winning Bay area Plein Air artist. Her works are displayed in public and private collections in the United States and many foreign countries.

The recent publication marks the organization’s 25th genealogy-related public service project to transcribe and publish early historical records of eastern Alameda County. The Early Records of the Presbyterian Church of Pleasanton, California and other L-AGS publications are available for free at http://L-AGS.org/pubs.html.
