*  President – Judy M. Jiru

Judy has been a long time member of CGSSD. Previously she served as our Treasurer. She became interested in genealogy back when CGSSD started offering The Master Genealogist (TMG). She was involved in the German Research Association. Being adopted she was interested in finding out information about herself. Most of her genealogy research was in Wisconsin, Czech Republic, Ohio and Pennsylvania. She works as a system engineer and lives in Poway.

*  Vice President for Administration – Judy Davis

Judy has been a member of CGSSD since 2006 and has agreed to be our Vice President of Administration for 2011. Having pursued her family history for thirty years, she currently utilizes Roots Magic as her preferred genealogy tool. Those locations in which she has a personal research interest are Minnesota, Wisconsin, Germany (and its extended historical regions), Norway and Sweden, along with other places into which she has delved on behalf of family members and friends. She makes her home in the Golden Triangle area of San Diego.

*  Vice President for Membership – Dale Nesbit

I became interested in genealogy when my father gave me a pedigree chart with only three generations of Nesbits. I wanted to know more but he didn’t want to do any research. So what was I to do? I heard about CGSSD from Lance Doha at a computer convention in 1995. The first meeting I went to was at the LDS Church in Mission Valley. After the meeting I went to the FHL and learned about some beginners classes. The rest is history. I joined CGSSD in 1995. I have been the membership guy for the last five years.

*  Secretary – Sandra Scott

I use Roots Magic primarily, although I have used Family Tree Maker and Heritage Family Tree Deluxe. I enjoy the programs that are given through the society and I like the user group meetings about Roots Magic. I am at home in Fallbrook, CA.

*  Treasurer – Louise Guilbault

Louise has been a member of CGSSD since 2000. She enjoys the many speakers that are available at the meetings and sharing information with other genealogists. She has been our Treasurer twice during that period for a total of six years. She has also led the Legacy Users Group for all but the first year of its existence. She is at home in Poway with her husband and her cats.

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.
