"Using Effectively" Presentation at Corona CA on Monday, 12 July

Genea-Musings is taking a short road trip on Monday, 12 July - visiting the Corona Genealogical Society in Riverside County. The meeting is in the Community Room of the Corona Public Library, 650 S. Main St., Corona CA 92882. The doors open at 6:00 p.m., and the program at 6:30 p.m.

I will be presenting my 90-minute "Using Effectively" talk, highlighting the Member Trees, Database Searching and the other features.

Jean Wilcox Hibben, who writes the wonderful Circlemending blog and presents programs all over the country, is President of Corona Genealogical Society, and sent this invitation to her members yesterday:

Have you ever gotten on line with, looked at all the options available, and either shook your head or just ignored them. What do they all mean? How can they help with your family history? Yes, most of us are familiar with the census, military, and immigration records, but there is so much more! What about the family trees? All those other data bases? The resources they boast about?

How can one learn about all these things? Simple! Attend this Monday evening's Corona Genealogical Society meeting in the Community Room of the Corona Public Library, 650 S. Main St., Corona (92882). Doors open at 6pm to allow time for networking, getting your name tag, finding a good seat, etc. Then the meeting will begin at 6:30pm with a short business portion (very short - everything will be available on the printed agenda so we can keep our remarks to a minimum). We want to have that part of the meeting completed within about 20 minutes so that, after a short recess, we can launch right into our very special program with our esteemed speaker -- RANDY SEAVER!

Randy is past president and board member of the Chula Vista Genealogical Society (that's south of San Diego, so he's coming a long way just to educate us). He maintains a marvelous blog ( and is on top of virtually everything in the genealogy community (and, especially, the virtual portion). This man has stayed up to date on the changes at and comes with the most current information. We are so fortunate that he has agreed to make the trek north to educate us, so we hope he is rewarded with a large crowd! Bring your genealogy-minded friends & family!

My thanks to Jean for the invitation to speak, the wonderful presentation summary - she really raised expectations, didn't she? Linda and I look forward to meeting new friends at Corona and enjoying their hospitality.
