Using RootsWeb Message Boards & Mailing Lists
by Hal Horrocks

The presentation looks at the importance of using Rootsweb to get your family history questions answered. Mr. Horrocks goes through the process of finding the right message boards and mailing lists, posting questions and answering queries. There are many examples given in the presentation that will make it easy for a participant to jump right in and start posting questions. Mr. Horrocks is currently Vice-President of the Orange County California Genealogical Society (OCCGS) in charge of programs. He also teaches an Intermediate/Advanced class on the first Saturday of each month for OCCGS.

We meet at the Robinson Auditorium complex on the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) campus in La Jolla. From North Torrey Pines Road, turn at Pangea Drive into UCSD. Free parking is available in the parking garage on the left; use any space other than those specifically reserved for UCSD vehicles. Signs will mark directions to our meeting room. Please refer to our website; or the Graduate School of International Relations and Pacific Studies website for driving directions and a map.

I'm looking forward to attending this meeting.
