Our Newsletter is published ten times a year. It contains research tips, society news and announcements of upcoming events of interest to members. The Newsletter subscription is included in the cost of membership.
The Santa Clara County Connections is published biannually. It focuses on Santa Clara County records, history, book reviews, queries (free to members), and items of interest to those doing local research such as Member Stories and Veteran’s Human Interest Stories.
The publication of Connections has been disrupted, due to lack of an editor. The latest issue (Spring 2016; Vol. 53, No. 1; Whole Nbr. 147) was distributed June 2016. Volume 53 No. 2 is to be distributed in 2017. The publication date for Volume 54 is undetermined - publication will resume when a new editor is up to speed.
All paid subscriptions will be honored. Additional subscriptions are not being taken, temporarily, as of April 2017.
