SDGS Program on Saturday, 9 June Features Ann Montgomery

The June 2012 program of the San Diego Genealogical Society (SDGS) is this Saturday, 9 June, at 10 a.m. at St. Andrews Lutheran Church (8375 Lake Murray Blvd) in San Diego.  

The featured speaker will be Ann Montgomery, presenting on:

1) "Genealogy Resources at the Carlsbad Public Library"

2)  "What's New at Family Search"

Ann is a graduate of the University of Southern California with a BS in Dental Hygiene.  After 20 years as a dental hygienist, she discovered her new loves in Family History Research and teaching.  Ann volunteered and taught classes in the Family History Center for the LDS church for eight years before being employed at the City of Carlsbad Library Genealogy division.  She enjoys teaching customers how to use the collection, the third largest collection of genealogy resources in California.  "We are so fortunate to have such a wonderful facility right here in our midst," Ann says.

Classes she teaches at the library include the paid databases offered by the library, Ancestry Library edition, Fold3 (formerly footnote), AmericanAncestors, Heritage Quest Online, and Access Newspaper Archives.  The library offers classes twice a month and society meetings twice a month.

Ann lectures on FamilySearch (Ann's favorite website), how to use the Carlsbad Library, and how to access and use the User's Guides provided by the staff for more extensive and difficult record collections in the library.

Ann is employed by the County of San Diego Library system and works in Encinitas where she gives small computer classes each month.  Ann has spoken at the North San Diego County Genealogical Society meetings, the Escondido Family History Fair, and presented at the Computer Genealogy Society of San Diego.
