CVGS Program on Monday, 5/21

San Diego area genealogists may be interested in the next Chula Vista Genealogical Society program on Monday, May 21, at 10 AM in the Chula Vista Civic Center Library Auditorium. Note that this is the 3rd Monday, not the last Monday - Memorial Day is the last Monday of May and the library is closed.

After our normal society business meeting, the program will be about "Naming Customs," presented by Bernice Heiter, a member of CVGS. The summary of the program is:

"The presentation will discuss naming patterns followed by most families during the 17th and 18th Centuries, customs which many of us in genealogy find baffling and frustrating today. Tips will be given on ways to overcome this dilemma. Naming customs in various cultures will be discussed, including some family names, or surnames, such as the French-Canadian 'dit' names, some name endings used in certain nationalities, and finding the correct family name in Spanish and Portuguese family names."

Please join us for this meeting. Visitors and guests are always welcome to all of our meetings.
