Looking for a speaker for your group? CSH staff members are available to make presentations to historical and genealogical societies, civic and fraternal organizations, business and professional groups, and educators and their students. The presentations run between 15 and 45 minutes, and may incorporate an accompanying PowerPoint slideshow and handouts. Presentation subjects include:
- how to preserve family records and photographs
- how to conduct historical research at the Center
- what historical and genealogical resources are available at the Center
While these presentations are free of charge, an honorarium, in the form of a tax deductible gift to the Sacramento History Foundation, is appreciated.
You may also schedule a Center staff member to share stories from his or her research, or about an event we may be planning. We require a $50.00 tax deductible gift to the Sacramento History Foundation, or if your group numbers more than fifty people, $1.00 for every person attending.
CSH staff members are also available to host a table at a limited number of community events. In the past, the Center has participated in the S.O.C.A. Home Tour, Family History Day, California State Archives Open House, and Gold Rush Days in Old Sacramento.
If you are interested in having the Center present or host a table at your next community event, please call (916) 808-7072 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
