San Diego Seminar with Dick Eastman

Hey, San Diego genealogists - Dick Eastman, the premier genea-blogger and expert genea-technology guy is coming to town for an all-day seminar on May 12.

The seminar is sponsored by the San Diego Genealogical Society and the Computer Genealogy Society of San Diego (both of which I belong to!). It will be held at St. Andrews Lutheran Church (8350 Lake Murray Blvd (at Jackson Drive) in San Diego, starting at 8:30 AM (registration) until 3:30 PM. A catered buffet lunch will be provided. Prices are $28 for members of SDGS/CGSSD, or $30 for non-members.

Dick Eastman will make four presentations:

1) "Grandpa in Your Pocket" -- a demonstration of various gadgets that will make your genealogy research easier and do things not thought possible before.

2) "The Internet - the Good, the Bad and the Ugly" -- learn the many great and new things the Internet has to offer as well as the pitfalls and scams. A must for every researcher.

3) "Google for Genealogists" -- learn how to maximize your results in using the world's most popular search engine; find out how to do things you never dreamed possible.

4) "Putting the Genes in Genealogy" -- learn your family history to help your family fight or neutralize inherited diseases; something every genealogist needs to know.

Spaces are limited so make your reservation soon - make checks payable to SDGS and send them to Gloria Osborn (1997 Alameda Tr, San Diego CA 92103). Contact Gloria at globob22(at)yahoo.com.

The seminar looks like it will be excellent, and I am going to try to rearrange my flight schedule so that I can attend (we are scheduled to be in Santa Cruz that week before to see the grandsons).

I urge all San Diego area (and even all Southern California) researchers to sign up and attend this seminar. The price is right, the food is good and I know Dick's programs will be excellent.
