CVGS Meeting on 4/30 - "Organizing Your Files"

Our next CVGS general society meeting is on Wednesday, 30 April at 12 noon in the Auditorium of the Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library. After a short business meeting, the speaker will be Audrey Potterton on "Organizing Your Files."

The program announcement:

"You cannot do a complete job of research if you are not organized! Audrey started with a simple system that has followed her through all these years of research. If you feel "buried" in facts and don't know where to put it all, Audrey will try to help!

"Audrey Potterton was raised in Chula Vista and attended CV High School. She has been married 54 years, has two sons and 4 grandchildren. Experiencing "empty nest syndrome" when her sons were grown, she went to the 10th St. LDS library with only her grandparents names, read some census records and got "hooked" on genealogy! After a year, she volunteered at the library and now has been there every Tuesday for 25 years cataloging film and fiche. She taught beginners classes for 20 years, and after completing her genealogy research, turned professional!"

When you come to the meeting, please enter through the Conference Room door to sign in, pick up the handouts, buy an opportunity drawing ticket and have a snack. At 12:15 p.m., we'll move into the Auditorium to start the program.
