Corona (CA) "Stones, Bones and Ancient Tomes" Event on 25 October

I received the following information from Jean Wilcox Hibben about a genealogy event on Saturday, 25 October in Corona (CA) in Riverside County:

"The Corona Genealogical Society (CGS) is proud to announce their "2nd Annual Stones, Bones, and Ancient Tomes" Genealogy Event. This event is FREE and open to the public. A combination of presentations and displays, it will be held at the Corona Public Library, 650 S. Main St., Corona, California, on Saturday October 25, 2008.

"From 10 am until 4 pm, our knowledgeable members will have display booths to assist anyone with beginning genealogy, organizing materials, related software, writing family history, restoring/preserving documents and photos, one-on-one help with Internet Searches, Family Tree Maker, Hispanic Genealogical Research, DNA, DAR and much, much more!

"Members of CGS and invited guest speakers will conduct jam-packed mini seminars on various subjects including "Why to do Family History," "Writing Your Life Story," "How-To use Family Tree Maker software," "Beginning Family History," "Cemetery Walks," "The Corona Family History Center," "Using available Corona Public Library Resources," and more.

"For more information, please go to our website:"

This sounds like an interesting and rewarding set of mini-seminars. I will be interested in hearing how successful this event is in reaching into the community to promote interest in genealogy and family history research.
