Sutro library, the California State Library branch is located in San Francisco, has one of the largest genealogy collections west of the west (i.e. Salt Lake City). Sutro Library is not just the physical hub for the genealogy community, it is also a virtual hub. Come learn about the highlights of the genealogy collection, how to search online, and how to access once on-site. Presented by Dvorah Lewis.

Dvorah Lewis joined the California State Library in June 2017 as the Genealogical & Local History Librarian at the Sutro Library. She earned her Master’s in Library & Information Science at UCLA. Her passion for archives and genealogy was inspired by an interview with her great Aunt Essie, the then eldest member of her family. She is excited to help researchers learn how to navigate the State Library’s extraordinary collections and resources. Dvorah feels that by preserving the past we can understand the present and bring positive change to the future.
