Pam Journey and Randy Seaver are Presenting at SDGS Meeting on Saturday, 8 November

The San Diego Genealogical Society November meeting is this Saturday, 8 November, starting at 12 noon. The meeting is at St. Andrew's Methodist Church in San Diego (8350 Lake Murray Blvd., just south of Jackson Drive).

There are two speakers and topics for this program. In the first hour, Pam Journey will be presenting "Using the SDGS Library Online Catalog." The SDGS newsletter says of this program:

In our first presentation, our Library Director, Pam Journey, will show you how to use and get the most out of our online library card catalog from home. If you are not using it regularly in your research, you are missing out on a huge esearch advantage. Come and learn how to maximize its capabilities.

A long time family history researcher, Pam also teaches genealogy classes for the Society and for the San Diego community. She traces her heritage back to early New England.

In the second hour, Randy Seaver will present "Genealogy Web Sites You Can Use." The newsletter summary of the talk and speaker is:

Randy Seaver, President of Chula Vista Genealogical Society (& SDGS, CGSSD, NGS member), will help you wade through the thousands of web sites and find which ones are “best” for you. He’ll cover hundreds of sites that have really useful records with links by genealogy record type. Come and learn how to take your research to the next level.

A researcher with over 20 years experience dealing with American, English, German and Dutch ancestry, Randy has been using the Internet since 1993. He publishes the well known blog, www.GeneaMusings.com and is a proud 5th generation San Diegan.

I look forward to seeing many SDGS members at this meeting. As always, SDGS meetings are FREE to attend, and guests and visitors are always welcome.
