    DIANE'S COMMENTS ABOUT THE TALK AND INTERACTIVE EVENT.


    I think it is going to be a DO NOT MISS EVENT.


     Besides talking about FamilySearch.org, I will be incorporating some of the things I have been developing for our next Family History Day.


    For me, FamilySearch.org is just one tool in my arsenal.  I use many other tools when I am trying to place someone on my family tree or on the tree of a person whom I am assisting.  For that reason, we will see a variety of research items.


    One of my wonderful families is named Houghton.  They started in England, went to Canada, some ended up in the United States, and others now live in far away Australia.  Lucky for us today, when we do research, we can use DNA, emails, photography, maps, and etc., to make connections and to break down long standing brickwalls.


    I will be showing some of my other families and numerous posters.  I will be asking for audience participation and I would be pleased if you would be at my side to help me as needed.  


    I was well trained in how to do family search in the late 1970’s.  I used to work with a program called PAF.  Personal Ancestral Files.  Other great companies have come along with their own programs but PAF was always excellent for me and I still call upon it in my hard copy files.  I have my own style of genealogy and I am hopeful that some of what I have done and learned, will be helpful to others.  


    I look forward to presenting to the Saturday group of the Chula Vista Genealogical Society on July 6, 2019, in the Bonita Library.


    Sincerely,

    Patricia Diane Godinez

    Thursday, March 21, 2019, 3:00–4:00 PM EST

    Presented by Alicia Crane Williams, FASG

    Free and open to the public






    Following the advent of American genealogy in the early to mid-19th century, thousands of genealogies were published featuring families across the country. While largely uncited—and arguably biased—these early works continue to be an important resource for modern day family historians. Join Lead Genealogist of the Early New England Families Study Project and frequent contributor to the Vita Brevis blog, Alicia Crane Williams, to learn how you can access, evaluate, and utilize early published family histories in your research.

    Bonita- Sunnyside Library 1 to 4 pm

    4 Topics from the NGS Seminar in Grand Rapids

    Presenting data on four subjects and hope to come back and do the other 5.

    The biggest reward was seeing people I have worked with since the old Golden Gate Forum group in the 1990's. Also seeing some of my east coast cousins for the first time in person.

    We will talk about: Water Ways and Travel, War of 1812 data, Key DNA Information, What they drank to stay alive, and maybe one more depending on questions and time.

    So grateful I was a team member of the old Golden Gate Forum. 122 + leaders shared information with each other and attendees. We set many records and going to this Conference in Michigan so reminded me of the attitude and caring that was developed at that time and many were there.

    To me, they approach research a wee different than us West Coast people do. Of course many are not far from where they need to dig, others are at a distance. The prospective of how to approach research and presentations had a different air about them.

    Hoping you come and learn some of the cool information that was shared. Some was things I have never heard broached let alone discussed. Jamboree I have been to many times but this was sure interesting and fun and so educational.

    Looking forward to the one next year.

    A small hand out and query will be given.
