I'm Presenting "An Overview of New England Research" on Tuesday, 28 May at NSDCGS (Carlsbad, Calif.)

One of the neat things about being a presenter in Southern California is visiting my friends at many healthy and thriving genealogical societies in the area.

Tomorrow, I'm visiting the North San Diego County Genealogical Society (NSDCGS) in Carlsbad, California.  Their monthly program starts at 10 a.m. in the Carlsbad City Council Chambers at 1200 Carlsbad Village Drive ( just east of I-5, take Carlsbad Village Drive offramp, turn left at the light to go into the parking lot).

My topics is "An Overview of New England Research."  A synopsis:

New England has a rich trove of genealogical and family history records, starting with the founding of each town, county or colony in the six present states. In this presentation, Randy will describe the sources for vital records, land records, probate records, town records, family history books and periodical articles for Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Vermont, including significant brick-and-mortar repositories and online research opportunities.

I hope some Genea-Musings readers will be there!  If attendees want a PDF version of the handout in order to click the links, please email me at

Being a Yankee who lives in Denver, and used to live in Redondo Beach, California and Naperville, Illinois, I wish there was someplace to learn how to do the research for Massachusetts ancestors long distance, with occasional New England trips.
