SDGS Beginning Genealogy Classes

The San Diego Genealogical Society (SDGS) offers FREE classes in Beginning Genealogy twice each year to help people learn more about their family. The next round starts this Saturday, 14 March, from 10 a.m. to 11:15 a.m. at St. Andrew's Lutheran Church, 8350 Lake Murray Blvd. (corner of Jackson Drive), San Diego CA 92119.

The four class dates and topics are:

March 14 - Genealogy Basics
April 11 - Census Records
May 9 - Vital Records
June 13 - Computer Resources

The course will be repeated on 11 July, 8 August, 12 September and 10 October.

Registration is recommended, but not required. For more information, or to register, call 1-619-588-0065. Walk-ins are welcome.

These classes have been a good drawing card for SDGS to gain new members. They are held before the regular SDGS program meeting.

If you are interested in becoming a genealogist in San Diego, these classes are an excellent way to start your lifelong search for ancestors. You can't beat the price, and the lessons are excellent, not to mention the fellowship in the class and the subsequent SDGS meeting. You will find that this is almost the most fun there is in your intellectual life!
