CVGS Program on Wednesday, 25 May: "My Ancestors Came From England"

The May 25th program meeting of the Chula Vista Genealogical Society will be at 11:30 a.m. in the Auditorium of the Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library (365 F Street). The program will start promptly at 11:30 a.m. Please note the TIME CHANGE for this event only!

The Program Speaker will be Fred Spong on "My Ancestors Are From England, And That's All I Know."

The program description and author's credentials:

The possibility of finding an ancestor in English records diminishes significantly if you do not know the town and county that he or she came from.

This presentation will discuss the avenues that can be utilized if the town and county of the ancestor are unknown. There are a number of resources available that may direct the researcher to the correct ancestor and they will be discussed.

Fred Spong is a retired physician who has been doing genealogical research for about 13 years. He is a past-President of the North San Diego County Genealogical Society, and is a delegate to the Federation of Genealogical Societies.

Please note the time change – 11:30 a.m. for the start of Fred's presentation. The Conference Room doors will open at about 11 a.m. for attendee registration, handout distribution, and a snack. The business meeting will occur after the presentation this month.
