CGSSD Meeting on Saturday, 20 October 2012

The Computer Genealogy Society of San Diego (CGSSD) meets on the 3rd Saturday of each month (except December) from 9:00 a.m. to noon on the campus of UCSD, University of California, San Diego. See our map page for directions.

The next meeting will be held on 20 October 2012 from 9:00 am to noon. Here are the details:

Instead of the annual Mini-Fair, we will be having a “Guided Tour of the UCSD Geisel Library.” 

Conducting the tour will be Harold Colson, a research librarian at the library. Harold is also a genealogist and maintains a website pertaining to colonial period tax records of certain key counties in North Carolina.

    • 9:00. Meet at the regular meeting place (the IR/PS building in the Robinson Auditorium complex at UCSD, La Jolla. See a link to maps at for business and an initial presentation by Harold Colson.

    • About 9:30, we will proceed on foot to the Geisel Library. If anyone needs to travel by car, we can arrange that through volunteers. We will provide maps if some attendees want to move their cars closer, but parking at the library is not convenient except for disabled placard holders, and nearby parking (which is free on weekends) is not plentiful.

    • After gathering in a library meeting room, Harold will lead the group to various book and map collections of interest to genealogists, including computer terminals that have access to Internet resources not available to the general public unless they come to the library. We call these the "deep Internet."

    • Following the library visit, we will not be returning as a group to IR/PS. The library is open to the public so anyone can stay all day if they'd like.

Visitors are welcome to attend.
