CGSSD Meeting on Saturday 11/17

I received this information from Linda H, the excellent program person for CGSSD:

"The Computer Genealogy Society of San Diego will meet on Saturday, November 17, 2007 from 9:00 am to noon.

"9:00 a.m. -- User Groups will meet for Family Tree Maker, Legacy and RootsMagic.

10:15 a.m. -- Break
10:30 a.m. -- The annual meeting will begin. There will be the election of officers, updates on CGSSD from board members, and a time for members to share recent research breakthroughs, new websites, new software and computer techniques, and a discussion of unsolved problems and mysteries. Bring your stories and questions and contribute to a lively discussion of genealogical experiences from the past year. Let our room of experts address your questions and solve your current problems. Now is your opportunity to ask those “how to” questions! (To help plan for our meeting, please send Linda an email (
lrh0529(at) with your questions, or let Linda know if you want to contribute a story.)

"11:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon -- we can continue discussions over light lunch in the lobby.

"We meet at the Robinson Auditorium complex on the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) campus in La Jolla. From North Torrey Pine Road turn at Pangea Drive into UCSD. Free parking is available in the parking garage on the left; use any A, B, or S space. Signs will mark directions to our meeting room. Please refer to our website; or the Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies website for driving directions and a map (If you need information on handicap parking spaces, please contact Linda.)"

I always look forward to the FamilyTreeMaker class. I'm wondering if the leader will work in FTM2008 or 2006?

The session with success stories and questions-and-answers should also be interesting. I may try to live blog both sessions if I can connect to the UCSD wireless network (I usually can).

San Diego area readers - if you haven't been to a CGSSD meeting, why not come along this time. You will get a good idea about the society and its members and hopefully learn something about one of the software programs too.
