CVGS Computer Group Highlights - 15 June 2011

The Chula Vista Genealogical Society Computer Group meeting on Wednesday, 15 June had 10 attendees. 

Shirley Becker led the discussion, first visiting the Linkpendium website ( and demonstrating how to use the state, county and surname search features (  Shirley used her own research challenges to try to find useful information.  In the process, she found information on several USGenWeb pages ( for her counties of interest, and some surname information on the Rootsweb Freepages ( website.

Most attendees then went merrily off on their own specific searches to find useful information about their family surnames, and the localities where their ancestors resided.

The next meeting of the CVGS Computer Group will be on Wednesday, 20 July, in the Computer Lab at the Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library (365 F Street).  There are 12 computer stations in the Lab, and the leader shows her screen on the wall using the LCD projector.
