The location of GRB 34 A and B on a star chart

Groombridge 34 was a star system consisting of binary companion stars, Groombridge 34 A and Groombridge 34 B. It was located near Sol, Alpha Centauri, Tau Ceti, and Sirius. It was located in the Alpha Quadrant.

On several occasions in 2364, viewscreen readouts aboard the USS Enterprise-D showed the location of the A and B Groombridge 34 stars, in the form of a star chart from the Enterprise-D library computer. The stars names were abbreviated in the chart as GRB 34 A and B. (TNG: "The Naked Now", "The Last Outpost", "Conspiracy")

This system was located in the Andromeda constellation.
The star chart naming stars within twenty light years of Sol was drawn by Rick Sternbach for the Star Trek Spaceflight Chronology in the late 1970s. Found on page 77, this chart showed Earth commercial and exploration routes after the use of warp drive began. There were no commercial or exploration routes to Groombridge 34. The stars Alpha Centauri, Sol, Sirius, and Tau Ceti were identified on "The Explored Galaxy" wall chart as being located in the Alpha Quadrant..
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (pg. 44), Groombridge 34 was located in or near Federation space, in the Alpha Quadrant. This was a trinary star system. Groombridge 34A was a M class star with a magnitude of +7, which was 1/10 as bright as Sol. Groombridge 34B and Groombridge 34Cwere M class stars.
