Chula Vista Genealogy Society General Meeting.
“Newspapers: Beyond the Vital Records”
Presented by: Jeanette Shiel, CG
Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library
(365 F Street, Chula Vista, CA 91910)
There’s more to newspapers than just birth, marriage, and death notices. Discover newspapers across the country and what secrets they hold about your family! Garner those often overlooked golden nuggets of your ancestors’ daily lives from gossip, tax notices, business advertisements, etc. You’ll be surprised just what you can find!
A Board Certified Genealogist, Jeanette Shiel has been involved in family research for over 15 years. Jeanette is a member of the Association of Professional Genealogists (APG), and the Southern California Chapter (SCCAPG); President of North San Diego County Genealogical Society; life member of Utah Genealogical Association (UGA); and National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, currently serving a nine-year appointment on DAR’s Long Range Planning Commission.
Jeanette was born and raised in New York State and moved to Southern California in 2004. She continues to trace her ancestors in New England, New Jersey and New York back to the 1600s in colonial America. One of the most important aspects of research that she likes to explore is placing historical events into the timeline of her ancestors and including the push/pull factors that contribute to what and why her family members did what they did….and utilizing newspapers is a great source of information that builds her ancestors’ life stories.
The meeting starts promptly at Noon with announcements and introductions. Refreshments and fellowship will complete the program.
