SDGS Program on Saturday, 13 March: Wayne Anderson

The next San Diego Genealogical Society (SDGS) program meeting is Saturday, 13 March at St. Andrews Lutheran Church in San Diego (8350 Lake Murray Blvd, near Jackson Drive) from 12 noon until 2:30 p.m.

There are two presentations by Wayne Anderson -- “When the Absence of Information was a Clue” and “Times and Chronologies of an Extended Family.”

"Have you come across a published or online family tree that contains information about a distant relative and wondered how much of it was true, or found yourself scratching your head when trying to sort out relationships among multiple family lines in a particular area?

"Our presentation will use case studies that deal with getting beyond a brick wall and illustrate process and methodology in an attempt to prove the conclusion with sound genealogical research principles.

"Our presenter, Wayne Anderson, began genealogy in 1999. He is married and has two daughters. He is an active member of the North San Diego County Genealogy Society and Temecula Valley Genealogy Society. He has done presentations for NSDCGS, TVGS and San Diego chapter POINTers (Italian Genealogy organization). Wayne has a BA in history from the University of Dubuque, Iowa, and graduated from the State Department of Foreign Language Institute with an emphasis in Vietnamese. He has a MA in International Studies (Vietnam) from American University, Washington D.C., and is a retired Lt. Col. USAF, and Vietnam Veteran."

The SDGS day on Saturday, 13 March begins at 10 a.m. with a Basic Genealogy Class and a RootsMagic Users Group meeting from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m, also at St. Andrews Lutheran Church.

I will be away from San Diego for this program, so there will not be a summary afterward from me. The SDGS Newsletter will have a summary article, however.
