CVGS Program on Saturday - Maps in Genealogy

The Chula Vista Genealogical Society meeting on Saturday (31 March) will feature Liz Stookesberry Myers presenting her talk about finding and using maps in genealogy research - she has titled it "How to Read a Flat Map of our Round World." The talk will focus on different types of maps, how to read them, how to use them, and how to find them in repositories or online.

Liz is currently President of the Questing Heirs Genealogical Society in the LA/Orange County area. She is also Chairman of the Legislative Committee of the California Alliance and California State Liaison to the FGS/NGS Records Preservation and Access Committee.

CVGS started Fifth Saturday programs two years ago in an effort to offer programs to working people, or members of other societies, who cannot attend our monthly Monday morning meetings. This has been fairly successful - we often have several local non-member genealogists and several community working people attend these Saturday meetings.

If you are in the San Diego area and want to learn about using maps in genealogy research, please come visit us at the Chula Vista Civic Center Library (365 F Street, Chula Vista) at 10 AM on Saturday, 31 March.
