Next CGSSD Meeting is 23 June

A note for my San Diego area readers - the next meeting of the Computer Genealogy Society of San Diego (CGSSD) is NEXT Saturday, 23 June, not this coming Saturday, 16 June (usually, the meeting is the third Saturday, but is the 23rd this year because graduations at UCSD are the 16th).

The next meeting will be held on 23 June 2007 from 9:00 am to noon. Here are the details:

9:00 - User groups for Family Tree Maker and Macintosh, and Special Topic Session: Computer Genealogy
10 to 10:15 - Break, refreshments.
10:30 - Announcements followed by Program.
Trees Grow on the Web
by Gary B. Hoffman

Gary will demonstrate several new online tree-oriented services being introduced by heavyweights in the genealogy world:, FamilySearch (LDS Church) and some well-funded Internet startups. He will examine the features of these services and why you might want to put your genealogy on a central web site (or not). Free wireless access is available during the meeting to those who bring their own wireless-capable computers.

Gary is a computer manager at UCSD and has been involved with computers and genealogy for over 20 years. He is a former president of CGSSD and is our current webmaster.


I'm looking forward to Gary's talk. I have posted quite a bit about these online family trees, as have many other bloggers.
