Chula Vista Genealogy Society General Meeting

Places

Presented by: Gary Brock

Gary grew up in Michigan and was relocated to Mirimar Naval Air Station by the Navy in 1957. After discharge in June of 1960 he returned to Michigan for six months during which time he met and became engaged to his wife of 56 years, Wanda. When January arrived in Michigan he convinced Wanda to accompany him back to California where they settled in Santa Monica. He attended Santa Monica City Collage and later was employed at UCLA Physics Department engaged in Nuclear Physics research. After five years at UCLA he transferred to UCSD and continued research in Nuclear Medicine for another five years.

He left the University in 1978 to start his own data processing business, San Digito Data Services, based in Carlsbad, CA. In 1980 He and Wanda moved to the bay area where he started another data processing consulting firm, Brock & Associates, which he still operates on a reduced basis after retiring in 2002.

Gary is an ex-manager and president of San Digito Little League in Encinitas, CA., ex-member of the Town Council, Encinitas, CA. before it became a city, an ex-commissioner, Boys Scouts of America, San Diego and past President and current Web Master of The Chula Vista Genealogical Society, Chula Vista, CA. He is an avid gardener and a Life Member of the Handyman Club of America.

His own genealogy research is hard because he was adopted at 3 years old but he has managed to work his Mother’s lines back to the revolution war. However, he has been able to work his wife, Wanda’s, lines back to the 5th century because of so many royal and peerage ancestors. His presentation, “Places”, will cover some of the places in Western Europe where Wanda’s ancestors were so powerful and where he was able to visit recently

Following the presentation by our guest speaker there will be raffle drawings, refreshments and fellowship to complete the program.

Please register soon if you plan to attend this meeting so that we may better plan for this event.
