SDGS Meeting on 12 May - Peggy Rossi

The May meeting of the San Diego Genealogical Society is Saturday, 12 May at 10 a.m. at St. Andrews Lutheran Church (8350 Lake Murray Blvd, just south of Jackson Drive in San Diego).

The program speaker is Peggy Rossi, who will give two presentations:

1)  "Earning Their Keep: Our Ancestor's Presentations"

Like all of us, our ancestors had to earn a living.  In this talk, Peggy will explore ways to learn about your ancestors' occupations.  We'll look at resources to find your ancestors in business and occupational records along with sources for placing your ancestors' jobs in historical context.

2)  "You Have a Story to Tell: Writing Your Personal History."

Why write your personal history?  Telling your story will give you the opportunity to walk someone through your world and show them the journey you have taken.  This presentation will provide tips to help you get started on your own story so that, step by step, you will be able to share your own family history.

Peggy Rossi is co-owner of StorySeekers, a San Diego genealogical research, family history and memoir publishing company guiding numerous clients to prepare and publish their stories.  She has worked as a professional genealogical researcher since 1996.  Peggy serves as collections manager for the Rancho Bernardo Historical Society museum, as newsletter editor and board member of the California State Genealogical Alliance, conducts classes in genealogical research and speaks on both memoir writing and genealogical topics.
