While the Internet and computer-based technologies continue to become more and more prevalent, the only true archival storage medium remains paper. Learn why family history is more than just names and dates. Discover how to preserve your genealogy for generations to come and get new people excited about the past. Tom is founder of Creative Continuum, a publishing company that specializes in custom-designed family history heirloom books and short-run publications.

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.
