  Carole Sobke on “A New Family Tree to Plant, or How 
My Hobbies Have Branched Together”

at Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library 
(365 F Street) Auditorium

The Chula Vista Genealogical Society (CVGS) program meeting is Wednesday, 25 April, at 12 noon in the Auditorium of the Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library (365 F Street, Chula Vista CA 91910).

The program speaker is CVGS member Carole Sobke on "A New Family Tree to Plant, or How My Hobbies Have Branched Together."

This is a Power Point presentation about Carole's hobbies and how they relate to her genealogy. There is a little German and Scottish ancestry, but mostly San Diego and Sacramento family history.  It was just something she put together for fun!  It won't be necessary to take notes and there is no handout.

Carole is a native San Diegan and "root bound" as she has never lived more that 10 miles from where she was born - Mercy Hospital!  Many years were spent as a bookkeeper and library technician.

She has dabbled in family history off and on for about fifty years but didn't get really get "hooked" until she took Randy Seaver's OASIS class. During one session, she discovered an insane asylum record for a 2nd great-grandmother!  That did it - the "skeletons in the closet" began to appear - and she has found many!

All CVGS programs are free to attend.  There will be a short business meeting after the presentation, followed by an opportunity drawing and then a social time with refreshments.
