We’d like to remind you of two upcoming genealogy gatherings.
These offer excellent opportunities to introduce ourselves to prospective members, as well as meet others who share your own interest in genealogy. It is also the easiest and most productive way to be of service to our Society. Each of these events also has a very interesting program.
March 3, 2012: The EscondidoFamily History Center’s 8th Annual Family History Fair will be held from 9 AM to 4 PM at 2255 West Felicita Avenue, Escondido, CA. We need members to staff our table, disperse our brochures, and answer questions about the Society and Company activities.
Please join Martha Gresham in representing our Society and Company at this well-attended event. Last year’s Fair was very productive and led to our recent event at the National Archives. You will find a map, see the program and can register at its website: www.familyhistoryfair.net.
The keynote speaker is Kendall Jefferson from Ancestry.com. Please let Governor Ginny Gotlieb know if you plan to attend at firstname.lastname@example.org and if you can help at our table.
March 24, 2012: Our active prospective member, Bill Hurley, is helping to organize The Conejo Valley Genealogical Society Annual Seminar in Thousand Oaks.
This daylong program will feature Dr. John Philip Colletta, one of America’s most popular genealogical lecturers, speaking about using Federal, state and county records. Washington-based Dr. Colletta is on the faculty of several genealogical institutes and, for 20 years conducted workshops for the National Archives and taught courses for the Smithsonian Institution.
This seminar will be held from 8:30 AM until 3:30 PM at the Ascension Lutheran Church, 1600 E. Hillcrest Dr., Thousand Oaks, CA 91362.
