SDGS Meeting on 11 July - Annual Book Auction and Potluck Luncheon

The July meeting of the San Diego Genealogical Society is on Saturday, 11 July at St. Andrews Lutheran Church (8350 Lake Murray Blvd, in San Diego, at Jackson Drive).

At 10 a.m., there are two classes:

* RootsMagic Users Group, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

* Beginners Class, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

The program, starting at 12 noon, is the Annual Book Auction and Potluck Luncheon. The description of this program is:

It is that time again for our ever popular book auction. This is your chance to get great bargains on genealogical books, journals, magazines and other items to improve your research. There will be LOTS of unique and hard-to-find items, so get there early to preview the collection and be prepared for spirited bidding. This is a great way to get those much-needed research tools while helping the Society raise money. So, bring lots of cash and your checkbook. We will also have book tables for direct sales.

Our auctioneer will be the Society's Past-President, Peter Steelquist. With over 20 years of genealogy experience, he will be sure that bidding is lively and that everyone has an equal opportunity to get in the highest bid. Having fun will be the prerequisite for the afternoon. Be sure not to miss it.

For our potluck, bring your favorite dishes. (The Society has some great cooks!) Last names beginning with A-H can bring main course and casseroles, I-R for desserts and S-Z to bring salads. Be sure to also bring serving utensils for your dish as well as a place setting for yourself. Coffee and beverage will be provided. Bon appetit!

Hmmm. I need to find my list of books and periodicals that I own and update it. Ah, it's on LibraryThing! Cool. I wonder what goodies I can pick up for the CVGS library too? We'll see.

Russ, I am a LibraryThing member as well. I haven't got as many books as some but enough to make LT a handy tool. Have you ever had an occasion to send book data to LT using the LT twitter tool? I have only used it once but it worked slick. My name on LT is pamur.
