November 30th CVGS Program is "Heirloom Discovery Day"

The next program meeting of the Chula Vista Genealogical Society will be on Wednesday, 30 November at 12 noon in the Auditorium at the Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library in downtown Chula Vista (365 F Street). Please enter through the Conference Room (in the east hallway) in order to register your presence, pick up any handouts, and have a snack.

The program will feature Georgie Stillman, ASA, presenting an “Heirloom Discovery Day.” Georgie will evaluate, provide some historical background and estimate a value of family heirlooms brought in by CVGS members. Her expertise is in evaluating and appraising silver, china, glass ware, furniture, artworks, quilts and samplers.

Georgie Stillman ( has worked as a professional appraiser in London, England, Phoenix, and San Diego since 1971. She has served as president of the American Society of Appraisers (ASA), vice president of the San Diego chapter, and was founding director of the International Society of Appraisers. She has received numerous awards for her outstanding service, including Appraiser of the Year. Besides being a professional instructor at various colleges, she has made many radio/TV guest appearances and written articles for many publications, teaching audiences about antiques and art.

This is the fifth time that Georgie has done this program for us, and it gets better every year!
