SDGS Meeting on Saturday, 13 August Features Barbara Renick

The August program meeting of the San Diego Genealogical Society is Saturday, 13 August, at 10 a.m. at St. Andrews Lutheran Church (8350 Lake Murray Blvd, at Jackson Drive, in San Diego). 

The featured speaker is Barbara Renick.  If you've attended a Family History Seminar or Conference in Southern California, you've most likely had an opportunity to sit in on a lecture by Barbara Renick.  She is truly a powerhouse and you've probably walked out of her lecture(s) thinking two things: "I learned a lot about that topic" and "I sure would like to hear another lecture by her."

Because of positive speaker response surveys and the smiles that stretched ear to ear after her last visit to SDGS, we knew our members would enjoy another visit. 

Barbara will present on two topics:

Session 1:  "Eleven Layers of Online Searches."  In this session, Barbara will walk us through using advanced search techniques to help you find more online before switching to classic resources such as books, periodicals, and microfilms/microfiche.  She will provide information regarding alternate search tools and insight, using as an example.

Session 2:  "Techniques for Searching Books Online."  In this session, Barbara will provide information on how books are scanned and indexed and how the method used to scan or index can affect your research efforts.  She includes a summary of what is available, how much is available, and where you can find it.
