"Genealogy Blogging" talk on Saturday, 29 September

The Chula Vista Genealogical Society (CVGS) has a Saturday meeting several times a year - on 5th Saturdays in the spring, summer and fall. We wanted to provide a meeting opportunity for researchers who are unable to attend our monthly weekday morning meetings.

On Saturday, 29 September, the CVGS program will be "Genealogy Blogging - Soapbox or Service?" presented by Randy Seaver, CVGS President. The meeting will be held at 10 AM in the Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library auditorium (365 "F' Street in Chula Vista).

The talk summary and the speaker's biography are below:

"Weblogs (known as "blogs" - online journals or diaries) have multiplied over the last two years in all fields, including genealogy. This presentation will discuss the what, when, where, why and how of genealogy blogging, and introduce you to many active genea-bloggers - each with something to say in their own way. Genealogy news, research tips, family history examples, stories, humor, business, education - and more - are covered in genealogy blogs every day.

"Randy Seaver is a retired aerospace engineer, a genealogy researcher and family historian since 1988, with a fine set of obscure Northeast US/Canada colonial ancestors, with some 19th century English immigrants. A native San Diegan, Randy is a member of CVGS, SDGS, CGSSD, NEHGS, NGS and ESOG. He is currently President of the Chula Vista Genealogical Society and has made genealogy presentations to CVGS and several other societies. Randy was the first genealogy blogger in the San Diego area, and you can read his blog "Genea-Musings," with daily postings, at"

If you are in the San Diego area and need a genealogy fix on the weekend, come to our CVGS meeting. Visitors and guests are welcome. There will be refreshments after the meeting.
