CVGS Program on Wednesday, 30 January: Butch Hibben on "Creating Your Life's Story"

The January program meeting of the Chula Vista Genealogical Society is on Wednesday, 30 January, at 12 noon in the Auditorium of the Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library (365 F Street in Chula Vista).  

The program speaker is L. A. (Butch) Hibben presenting “Creating Your Life's Story.”

How can you preserve your family (and personal) memories and photos for future generations, making them accessible to only those you choose? Learn about this, along with specifics on interviewing and hints to get information from relatives, from a Certified Legacy Advisor.

L. A. (Butch) Hibben, Certified Legacy Advisor, has been involved in the field of family history from his youth. Knowing about his ancestry has been as much a part of his life as knowing basic life skills. Butch has remembered the stories and the roles his family played in the history of the states of Utah and Arizona.

Butch, like his ancestor pioneers, was a trailblazer in the field of computers, having become involved in the field in the late 1950s while serving in the U.S. Navy. After his discharge, he continued in the field as a computer technician for many years until his retirement in 2008. It is no wonder that he was inspired to assist others in preserving their heritage when he was introduced to the Living Legacy Project in 2011.

He has his own legacy to pass along, having sired five children, four of which have gone on to make him grandfather to twenty-four and great-grandfather to twelve. He serves as Assistant Director in the Corona Family History Center and is married to its Director and Corona Genealogical Society President, Jean Wilcox Hibben. They make their home in the Lake Mathews area of Western Riverside County, California. Butch, a former square dance caller, is an audio technician and plays saw and spoons. He can be reached through the website

There will be a short business meeting, including presentation of the Society's annual report and 2013 budget, before the speaker, and refreshments before and after the meeting at the back of the Auditorium.
