"Nooks and Crannies of" at North San Diego County Genealogical Society on Tuesday

Some guy named Randy Seaver will present a program called "The Nooks and Crannies of" at the Computer Oriented Genealogy Group (COGG) meeting of the North San Diego County Genealogical Society (NSDCGS) on Tuesday, 13 October at 10 a.m. The meeting will be held at the Carlsbad (CA) City Council Chambers (1200 Carlsbad Village Drive, Carlsbad CA 92008) and is open and free to the public.

The publicity for the program says:

Randy Seaver will enlighten his audience on the nooks and crannies of this thing called "Ancestry." While most members use this subscription service, Randy will demonstrate features rarely seen before.

Randy is a native San Diegan, a graduate of San Diego State University, a retired aerospace engineer, a genealogists and a family guy. He has been active in CGSSD for several years and is a past-president of the Chula Vista Genealogical Society. His ancestry is about 50% colonial New England (including Mayflower passengers, Massachusetts Bay Governors, and several of royal descent), with liberal portions of English, German and Dutch lines. Randy runs several blogs about his families and the Southern California area. He is a contributing member of the Association of Graveyard Rabbits.

Hmmm, sounds somewhat familiar. It sure raises the expectations of the audience, doesn't it? Did you know that had nooks and crannies? It does, of course! I'm not sure I've found them all, but I do have some suggestions for the audience about features that they, perhaps, haven't seen before. I'm actually calling the presentation "Exploring" but didn't get the revised publicity to the program chair in time (I was on my vacation).

I look forward to seeing my friends in Carlsbad again. I was up there for the COGG presentation last March. This is a very interesting and energetic genealogy society that sponsors two speakers each month, on the second and fourth Tuesdays, and has an excellent beginners class and supports the wonderful genealogy and family history collection at the Carlsbad Georgina Cole Library.
