Chula Vista Genealogy Society General Meeting.
“World War I, the Centennial”
Presented by: John Finch
Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library
(365 F Street, Chula Vista, CA 91910)
John 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 the Lee County, Illinois and San Diego Genealogical Societies. Retired from U.S. Navy, 1980, and San Diego County Probation Dept., 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 this library, every Wednesday morning to assist new and seasoned researchers.
John’s topic, World War I, the Centennial, examines the players and causes of the War, impact on all populations, and the unstable peace that followed the cessation of hostilities. A display of the various military and other records and documents will be presented which, hopefully, will aid in your research pursuits of this era.
The meeting starts promptly at Noon with announcements and introductions. Refreshments and fellowship will complete the program.
Please register soon if you plan to attend this meeting so that we may better plan for this event.
Attendance is free
