Randy's Saturday Roadtrip - Whittier Area Genealogical Society

I will be speaking to the Whittier Area Genealogical Society on Saturday, 16 November 2013 at 1 p.m.  The society meets at 7604 Greenleaf Avenue in Whittier, California.  The day at WAGS begins at 12 noon with a sandwich lunch - the website has details.

My topic will be Discovering Jane's Roots in California, Australia and England.  The presentation summary is:

In this presentation, Randy will explore the research journey to find the ancestors of his wife's great-grandmother, Jane (Whittle) McKnew (1847-1921).

She married in Gold Country, had a family of 11 children, survived the 1906 San Francisco earthquake, and died in San Francisco. Jane was born in Australia to parents who were born and married in England. Most of the research was done with online resources and in a collaborative environment

If you have missed hearing/seeing this presentation, please come and attend - and let me know that you're a Genea-Musings reader!
