SDGS Library has Open House on Saturday, 25 October

Marna Clemons sent this note to SDGS members recently:

This is just a quick note to remind you that the San Diego Genealogical Society is holding an Open House at its research library on October 25th from 1 to 4 pm.

The library is located at 1050 Pioneer Way, Suite E, El Cajon, CA 92020. It is freeway close and an easy 25 minutes (or less) drive from most San Diego County areas.

We have arranged to have professional genealogists available for scheduled consultations to help SDGS members with their brick walls and other genealogical research questions. Take advantage of this great opportunity to spend twenty minutes free with a professional genealogist. Professional genealogists often charge about $30 per hour for their services. This afternoon, they are helping SDGS members free. Reply by email to schedule your time with one of the genealogists. Get help with a genealogy problem you have been having or get help with where to go next with your research.

The professional genealogists who will be available are Joan Lowrey, Dona Ritchie, Penny McBride and Peggy Rossi. They can help with your United States research (any area), German research, genealogical problem solving, genealogical research planning, internet resources / searching, genealogical database applications, reading and translating German script, publishing a family history, finding living relatives, English research, Norwegian research, Italian research, African-American research, or Jewish research.

Drop me a note by email ( and I will schedule you for your personal, one on one, free consultation with a professional genealogist during the SDGS Library Open House.

There will also be help for individuals on a walk-in basis. Demonstrations will be available for genealogy software programs and internet use in genealogy research. Stop by anytime between 1 and 4 pm and see what is new at the San Diego Genealogical Society's library!

Unfortunately, I will be outta town on this date. I encourage other San Diego area genealogists to attend the open house and sign up for the free consultation with a professional genealogist.
