    Chula Vista Genealogy Society General Meeting.

    "Ghosts of the USS Midway"

    Presented by: David Hanson

    Chula Vista Civic Center Branch Library

    (365 F Street, Chula Vista, CA 91910)

    David Hanson runs the Midway museum's Curatorial Department, which handles all of the items donated to the museum. While his official title is "Collections Manager", he fills the role of what would be the ship's curator, and is the only paid staff member in the department.

    David has held this position since December 2004 (not long after the museum opened to the public). In his spare time he is a military historian, and is the leader of the largest paranormal group in the county (the San Diego Ghost & Paranormal Group), which has over 900 members.

    He will give a presentation on the "Ghosts of the USS Midway", in which he will discuss incidents of paranormal encounters aboard the USS Midway both during its active Navy career as well as in more recent years as a museum. These stories came from Midway staff members, visiting guests, and in some cases were personally experienced by himself while he led a professional investigative team around the ship during nine months of paranormal investigations. He considers the USS Midway to be one of the most paranormally active sites in San Diego, though it tries not to dwell upon it. Indeed, disclosures to the public of the Midway's hauntings are rare, and do not occur in any print or media.

    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

    CVGS Workshop:

    "Lost Ancestors"

    Presented by: Susi Pentico and others

    Bonita-Sunnyside Library


    General discussion regarding your lost Ancestors.

    We have found many times this is one of the best events, because time is taken to really share information with other members who are looking in the same area.

    Hope to have a good turn out and swap areas so you can cover more than one lost  Ancestor

    This event is FREE to attend.  Please register to attend this workshop on the CVGS web page -- www.CVGenealogy.org -- on the Events tab so that we can plan for seating, handouts and refreshments.

    Please be prompt.

    Chula Vista Genealogy Society General Meeting.

    “Heirloom Show and Tell”

    Presented by:    CVGS Members

    It's November again, time for what use to be our “Heirloom Discovery Day” meeting. However, as our friend Georgie Stillman is not able to be with us again this year we will, again, be presenting “Heirloom Show and Tell”.

    This is where our members bring in interesting items, that have become family heirlooms, to show us and tell us what they know about the item. 

    Please bring in your family treasures to share with the group. If you can carry it, you can bring it! If possible, send Gary Brock a photo of your item so it can be projected on the big screen.

    Please email Virginia Taylor if you will be bringing a Family Treasure along with the story about the item. Don’t forget the story.

    The meeting starts promptly at Noon with announcements and introductions.

    Presentations by our members followed by a short business meeting and finally raffle drawings, 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
