Jana Sloan Broglin is the featured speaker at the Hemet-San Jacinto Genealogical Society seminar and workshop to be held on Saturday, 21 February, starting at 9 a.m., at the Hemet Public Library (300 E. Latham Ave., Hemet CA 92543, 951-765-2372). Jana will make four presentations:

* Hot Off the Press - three centuries of Genealogy as Reported in the Newspapers.

* The Keys to the Courthouse - The way to unlock all the records found in the courthouse and how to use what you find!

* Hookers Crooks and Kooks: or Aunt Merle Really Didn't Run a Boarding House - A hilarious light-hearted look at searching for the black sheep in the family (done in costume).

* Land Records of the Old Northwest Territory - learn the migration, county formation, survey systems, etc, that determined the land settlement standards for much of the United States.

Pre-Registration (by 16 February) is $25, at-the-door registration is $30 (no lunch), and Luncheon tickets are $8. Make checks payable to HSJGS and mail to PO Box 2516, Hemet CA 92546. See the HSJGS web site at for more information. There are a limited number of seats available.

I saw Jana in action at the SCGS Jamboree last year doing her Hookers presentation - it was great! If you have the day free, I encourage my readers to go and enjoy Jana's presentations.
