"Using Old and New" Program at CVGS on Sunday, 25 July

The next Chula Vista Genealogical Society Weekender Program is on Sunday, 25 July at 2 p.m. in the Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library Auditorium (365 F Street in downtown Chula Vista).

The topic this month is "Using the Old and New Website" by Randy Seaver. The description of the presentation is:

"The classic LDS FamilySearch offerings have been online for many years, and are still useful to genealogy researchers. Digitizing of microfilm images by FamilySearch, and indexing by volunteers, has brought many new databases online for FREE use by researchers. In addition, the FamilySearch Research Wiki will replace the Research Guides, and the Family History Library Catalog will be improved. Lastly, a new FamilySearch Family Tree, currently being populated by LDS church members, will become available to all researchers by early 2011.

"In this presentation, Randy Seaver will cover the available record databases, the Research Wiki, the Family History Library Catalog, the Family Tree, and more. He will discuss the collaboration feature coming to FamilySearch as it creates an interconnected Family Tree."

This program is free for all attendees. Guests and visitors are welcome at all CVGS events. For more information, please contact Randy at
