CVGS Seminar on Saturday, 20 October - Last Call!

This is the last call for the FREE Chula Vista Genealogical Society seminar "Genealogy Online - Discover Your Family History" which will be held on Saturday 20 October 2007 at the Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library (365 F Street in CV) between 10 AM and 3 PM in the library auditorium. The full announcement is here.

The program schedule is:

10:00 AM -- Library doors open, sign-in for seminar.

10:30 AM -- Internet Genealogy Survey

11:30 AM -- LDS FamilySearch Resources

12:15 PM -- Refreshments in the conference room, eat in the park.

1:00 PM -- Rootsweb and USGenWeb Resources

2:00 PM -- Ancestry.com Resources

I have spent about 60 hours over the last three weeks creating the four OpenOffice presentations and the syllabus for the program. There are a lot of screen shots and "how-to" sequences in each presentation. I couldn't show every web site referred to, but I do have shots of many of them. The syllabus handout is 24 pages of links and comments from the presentations.

Now I BEG Ancestry, Footnote, WVR, GenealogyBank, Rootsweb, USGenWeb and FamilySearch to NOT CHANGE ANYTHING for the rest of the week - no new web pages, don't change links, don't redesign your pages. PLEASE? Pretty please?

I will put the presentations on my flash drive and laptop tonight (for backup) and then onto the society laptop tomorrow so that we have multiple copies available for Saturday. I don't want to do this again...

If you are in the San Diego area and want to attend this FREE presentation (the syllabus costs $5), we welcome your attendance. We do need you to register by calling Virginia at 619-425-7922 or email her at irishdoll(at)cox.net, since we need a count for the syllabus and the refreshments.

If you are going to the CGSSD meeting on the Saturday morning, you can make a really full genealogy day by coming to the CVGS program for the afternoon sessions.
