SDGS Meeting on Saturday, 14 May - Connie Moretti Presents

The May program meeting of the San Diego Genealogical Society is this Saturday, 14 May, at 10 a.m. at St. Andrew's Lutheran Church (8350 Lake Murray Blvd., at Jackson Drive). 

The program speaker for both sessions is Connie Walton Moretti.  Her presentations will be on:

*  Lineage Societies

*  DAR Online Resources

The presentation summaries:

Have you ever pondered how much research it might take to prove an ancestor served in the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, or arrived on the Mayflower?  Are you afraid that it might be too much research or that you're in over your head?  Speaker Connie Moretti will discuss the reasons for joining a lineage society and review the many types of such organizations.  Information and tips on completing the applications will also be discussed.

The Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) have made many of their unique resources available to the public at their website.  Each type of resource will be discussed as well as how to coordinate some of them with the Family History Library Catalog.

Representatives from a variety of lineage societies have been invited to be present.  Come as early as 9:30 a.m. before the meeting starts to speak with them individually, or see them during the refreshment break.

Connie Moretti is a retired educator active in lineage and genealogy societies and co-author of Stepping Stones to Genealogy and On the Road (a guide to Southern Los Angeles County genealogy libraries).
