"English Research" is CVGS Program on March 26

The next General Meeting of the Chula Vista Genealogical Society will be on Wednesday, 26 March at 12 noon in the Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library auditorium (365 F Street in Chula Vista). There will be a short business meeting before the program speaker.

Our speaker will be June Hanson who is active in the British Isles Genealogy Research Association (BIGRA) here in San Diego area. Her topic is "English Research." This will be about England only, not Ireland or Scotland - we have several speakers planned for these areas in the next few months.
