Chula Vista Genealogy Society General Meeting

"Writing and Publishing Your Family History: "

Presented by: Rick Hanson

Due to concern about the corona virus, the city of Chula Vista libraries haves been closed.

All CVGS meetings have been cancelled at these facilities until further notice. The Libraries are now open to limited use and the Society is in the process of arranging use of rooms for our meetings. Until those  arrangements are finalized we will continue to meet on ZOOM.

So, join us this month for our general meeting on virtual meeting with Rick Hanson

If you are not already receiving invitations to our ZOOM meetings please contact Randy Seaver at: and request your invitation.

One of the best ways to ensure that all your genealogical research will survive is to publish a book.This presentation provides an overview of the entire publishing effort – types of publications, why bother, writing, content, copyright, ISBNs, classification systems, other registrations, printing, binding and revisions.

Rick Hanson was a career computer programmer/analyst, and is now retired. He has been working with other family members on genealogy since 1983. He authored and selfpublished seven books (and is working on the eighth). Rick created a database of almost 4000 scanned family photos and source documents to support his book projects. He is the webmaster for the USGenWeb - Sierra County (CA) web site. He’s active in several local genealogy and historical society groups in Northern California. 

Attendance is free but only 100 seat are available so please register soon.
