Randy Will be Presenting at Questing Heirs Genealogical Society on Sunday, 17 May 2015

My weekend road trip continues on Sunday, 17 May 2015 with two presentations for the Questing Heirs Genealogical Society in Long Beach, California.  The society has a new meeting place - the Chapel of the Los Altos Methodist Church, 5950 East Willow Street (at Woodruff), Long Beac h, California 90815.

The two presentations will be:

1)  1 p.m.: "Searching Effectively" has many wonderful features--a lavish buffet where it is hard to choose what to use and how to use it. Randy will discuss the effective use of such features as new or old search algorithms, basic or advanced search forms, exact or ranked matches, full names or wild cards, specific or all databases, restricted or whole collection, and site navigation.

2)  2:30 p.m.:  "Discovering Your Pennsylvania Ancestors"

Pennsylvania has a rich history, and a diverse trove of genealogical and family history records in their towns, counties, and state archives.  In this presentation, Randy will describe the sources for vital records, land records, probate records, town records, family history books and periodical articles for Pennsylvania resources, including significant brick-and-mortar repositories and online research opportunities.

I hope to see many Genea-Musings readers there.  If you attend this event, please be sure to introduce yourself.  I usually ask my audiences if they read this blog.

In between the Saturday presentation in Whittier and these two presentations in Long Beach,. I plan to enjoy some time with my daughter's family, including the three grandchildren, in Huntington Beach.
