All of their members are Sun City residents, and they have about 50 members, but many are "snowbirds" who are there during the winter and spring. They have weekly meetings, and one of them is usually a speaker on a genealogy topic. The other meetings are "Genealogy Forums" where they discuss genealogy research, software programs, show and tell, answer questions, help each other, etc. I complimented them on their meetings that foster connectivity and collaboration for their members, and provides them educational opportunities on a regular basis. Their handout table had many forms on it, including a list of Legacy Family Tree webinars, the Legacy cruise, NGS registration forms, SCGS information, and much more.
I also told them about the Chula Vista Genealogical Society (CVGS) efforts to foster communication and collaboration, using the monthly Research Group (in a conference room to discuss issues and research problems), the monthly Computer Group (in the library computer lab to work on computer problems and online resources), and the monthly program meeting (with a speaker presentation or special event).
I regularly articles regularly on the Chula Vista Genealogy Cafe blog for CVGS - recent articles include:
* Genealogy Days in Chula Vista - January 2013
