Randy Will be Speaking in Carlsbad, Calif. on Tuesday, 23 June

The North San Diego County Genealogical Society Program meeting on Tuesday, June 23rd, will feature Genea-Musings writer Randy Seaver on "Probate Records - My Favorite Record Type!"

The meeting is in the Carlsbad City Council Chambers, 1200 Carlsbad Village Drive, Carlsbad, CA 92008.

NSDCGS have changed their meeting schedule:

*  9:00 a.m. Coffee Social; 

*  9:30 a.m. Society News, Sharing and Case Studies; 

*  10:00 a.m. Break; 

*  10:15 a.m. Speaker Presentation  “Probate Records - My Favorite Record Type” is presented by Randy Seaver. 

Note: The afternoon sessions that have traditionally met on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, known as the Business and Sharing Meetings, have now been integrated with the morning meetings. There will no longer be a monthly afternoon meeting on the 2nd Tuesday.

Probate records are Randy’s absolute favorite record type for identifying and proving family relationships. This presentation describes the overall probate process, the different kinds of probate records and how to find and obtain probate records in repositories and online record collections.
