    Schedule for Oct to Dec.

     Bonita-Sunnyside Library  7 Oct.,  1 to 4 pm 

    Tennessee Research and some History by Susi Pentico

     We will be discussing the development of Tennessee and why we have to look at more than one state.

    Various urls and books will be recommended. So yes, other states will be mentioned. 


    Lemon Grove Library 18 Oct., 6 to 7:50 pm

    Potential Guest Speaker

    Carol Sobke may be giving her new talk. Watch for news at our

    webpage for the Society.

    But it sounded really interesting when we were discussing it. 


     Bonita-Sunnyside Library  4 Nov.,  1 to 4 pm

    Lost Ancestors hosted by Susi and others.

    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


     Lemon Grove Library, 15 Nov., 6 to 7:50pm

     Review of Year, Desires for New Year

     We will go over what we have done, we will have a mini 

     celebration of the holidays for there won't be a December 

     meeting. We will plan what we will be discussing next  year.


    December is Christmas Blessings to All

    No meetings at Bonita-Sunnyside or Lemon Grove Libraries.

    See you in the new year.

      Being amazed at how many people were not aware of many of the sites that were shared. Mostly free sites which should please everyone. Any time you miss due to conflicts please advise me and I can share information with you.

     5. a, 20 Sept, 6 to 7:50 pm   Lemon Grove Workshop,   Sharing Information, Reaching Out to Others.   by Susi Pentico and others.  We have evenings like this ever so often and many times actually share more working knowledge than in a formal setting.  Exchanging names, places and ideas on how to resolve our situations.  It is always great to get others ideas.

    Sorry, I was so excited to share the new information that Dad hunted for, for years and my early morning call proved the government is still only as good as the person pushing the keys or buttons.  Errors are still greiviously made by us humans, myself included.

    July 19 Lemon Grove. 

      DId you FollowUp? 

    After presenting new and refreshing sites last month, did any of you do a follow up and try these new venues?    


    The purpose is to expand your research and help you find answers. I am hoping to hear from those who have tried new sites they were not familiar with.  I hope you took at least 4 of the sites and seen if you learned anything new.
