SDGS Meeting on Saturday

Calling all San Diego area genies - the San Diego Genealogical Society meeting is on Saturday, 14 April at 12 noon until 2:30 PM. The meeting is at St. Andrews Lutheran Church in San Carlos (8350 Lake Murray Blvd (at Jackson Dr) in San Diego). There are two speakers this month:

At 12 noon, Robyn Gage will present "WorldCat: Searching the World's Libraries." OCLC's WorldCat is the largest library catalog in the world with more than 68 million records. It provides access to the collections of 55,000 libraries in 110 countries. The presentation will examine search techniques using surnames, localities and organizations. Robyn Gage is the Catalog Librarian for the San Diego Public Library.

At 1:30 PM, Mary Card will present "How to Write a Family Newsletter." Newsletters are a great way to keep family members informed on their family history, meet new cousins, and gather new family information. Mary Card has been writing the "Card Chronicles" newsletter for the last 11 years.

During the break between the talks, there are snacks and drinks and a chance to support SDGS by buying society products and gently used books.

Note that I am a member of SDGS and enjoy their programs monthly, but I don't get paid for broadcasting this to the genea-blogosphere. I'll see you there!
