Chula Vista Genealogical Society Meeting on Wednesday, 27 January Features Diane Gould Hall

 Wednesday, 27 January 2021, 12 noon PST

CVGS General Meeting (in a Zoom Video Conference)

Diane Gould Hall on

"My Visit to Scotland: What I Did Right and What I Did Wrong.”

This presentation will cover why Diane wanted to go to Scotland, her preparations and itinerary, the wonderful genealogy research finds, the problems encountered, and the sightseeing. The preparation and information she will discuss are applicable to any genealogy trip in the U.S. or abroad.

Diane Gould Hall is a member of the Mayflower Society, Daughters of the American Revolution, the San Diego Genealogical Society, the North San Diego County Genealogical Society, and the Aberdeen & North-East Scotland History Society. She has been researching her family for over 18 years, and writes about it in her excellent blog, Michigan Family Trails (  

She has had incredible successes researching her family history. One of the biggest was due to a post she made on Rootsweb many years ago. A long lost brother was able to find her. In doing so he was able to meet their Mom, who had given him up for adoption as a baby. It was a wonderful, happy reunion for both mother and son that lasted ten years prior to her death. That brother and Diane are now very close friends.

Diane's hobbies, besides genealogy, include traveling, caring for her horses and reading. She is happily married and retired. She thinks genealogy is the most interesting and rewarding hobby there is.
