John Finch on “The Civil War”

John Finch has been a member of the Chula Vista Genealogical Society since 1999 and has served as Library Coordinator, Program Chair and President (2004 -2006 term). He is also a member of genealogy societies in his areas of his research.

Retired from U.S. Navy, 1980, and San Diego County Probation Department, 1999. John developed an interest in his own family history at a very young age, but did not begin an active pursuit of research until after retiring in 1999.

Now, he spends several hours each week researching his family and volunteers, at the Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library, every Wednesday morning to assist new and seasoned researchers.

John’s topic, The Civil War, is of special interest to him. He has three direct ancestors that fought in this conflict and he is very proud of their service in this momentous event in our history. It is his goal that you may learn how to identify your veteran ancestor and learn details of his service enhancing you’re family experience.

The presentation will starts promptly at 12:30 p.m.

Following the presentation there will be a short business meeting, a raffle, refreshments and fellowship.

Attendance is free.
