Judy Brooks is SDGS Program Speaker on Saturday, 14 November

The next San Diego Genealogical Society program is this Saturday, 14 November, starting at 10 a.m. at St. Andrew's Lutheran Church (8350 Lake Murray Blvd. in San Diego, at the corner of Jackson Drive).

Judy Brooks is the speaker for both sessions.  Her two talks will be:

1)   Researching Scottish Ancestors: This presentation gives an introduction to numerous web sites for researching Scottish ancestors throughout the United Kingdom that include those with links to various sites, the most common paid and free sites, and some unusual sites encountered in my research.

2)  High Road or Low Road How and Why the Scots Migrated:  This presentation is primarily a history of Scottish Migratory Patterns as far back as the 14th century. Your Scottish ancestor may have entered the United States from a number of countries from Europe to Australia and the Caribbean.

Judy Brooks has been researching both her own and her husband's ancestry since 1995 when he began looking for his tartan and proof of his Scottish heritage. As both families were in the United States in Colonial times, she has done extensive research in Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky, and Nebraska which has led her to additional research in Ireland and Scotland. She is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists, National Genealogical Society, Southern California Genealogical Society, Nebraska Genealogical Society, Ohio Genealogical Society, Genealogical Speakers Guild, and an active member of the San Diego North County Genealogical Society.

The education class at 9 a.m. will be the Special Interest Group hosted by Del Ritchhart.
