CVGS Seminar on Saturday, 24 April

So, who do you think you are? You watched the PBS television program “Faces of America” with Henry Louis Gates, and the NBC television show “Who Do You Think You Are?” – and you saw the inspirational stories of the family histories of a number of celebrities.

Are you ready to discover your own family stories? Let us help you get started with a “Getting Started – Finding WHO You Are” program tailored to new members and beginning researchers.

The seminar will be held on Saturday, 24 April, from 1:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the South Chula Vista Library (389 Orange Avenue in Chula Vista, just east of Fourth Avenue) in the Conference Room (located at the far west end of the library building. You can enter through the door on the south side of the library near Fourth).

This program, presented by CVGS member Susi Pentico, will discuss the easy way to start your genealogy research. She will show you how to start without a library trip or other data being necessary. This method may come as a pleasant surprise to many. Come learn the "down home" way of doing research, starting with a minimum of fuss and have some fun. Genealogy so helps you to learn who you are.

Following Susi’s talk, CVGS President Gary Brock will discuss the ways that the Chula Vista Genealogical Society can help new and experienced members pursue their research.

Reservations for this seminar will be appreciated so that CVGS can prepare sufficient handouts – please contact Virginia (email, phone 619-425-7922).

It is our intent to have coffee, punch and cookies presented by our members to our guests at this event at the south branch. So if you could step forward with a small plate of cookies to assist us we would appreciate it.

Please coordinate your refreshments with each other or contact Susi or Virginia.
