The Genealogy Room collection, located within the Beale Memorial Library, contains books, magazines, printed vital records, and books on heraldry and family names. Complete California census records through 1920 are also available on microfilm. Additionally, the collection includes the microfiche index to the collection of the Sutro Library. In 2014, 300 new genealogy books were added to the collection, covering Arkansas, Alabama, Mississippi, and Missouri. The Genealogy Room is open, during most normal operating hours of the Beale Memorial Library. Volunteers from the Kern County Genealogical Society are on hand to assist customers.
