Chula Vista Genealogical Society Meeting on Wednesday, 29 March Features Jen Baldwin

 Wednesday, 29 March 2023, 12 noon PDT

CVGS General Meeting (in a Zoom Video Conference)

Program Speaker:  Jen Baldwin  on 

"Mapping Your Way Through Your Family History"

We can use maps to tell the story of your ancestral journey, as well as use them as a research tool. Discover amazing online and offline collections that will add great depth to your story no matter where in the United States your ancestors ventured.

Jen Baldwin has been working in the realm of professional genealogy since 2010 but has been pursuing her family history since she was ten years old, enjoying her grandmother's stories - and her cookies. She is currently the Research Specialist and North American Content Manager for Findmypast.

Jen lectures, writes, and consults on a variety of genealogy-related topics, and was part of the research team for Genealogy Roadshow, season two on PBS. She is the author of course materials for the National Institute of Genealogical Studies. She is excited to discover unique resources that allow for a different perspective in genealogical research, including the vast research opportunities for family historians around the world to take advantage of UK collections, such as newspapers and the newly released 1921 Census of England and Wales.
