SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA JAMBOREE IS COMING UP

JUNE 5-7, 2015
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA GENEALOGY JAMBOREE

 

The always anticipated Southern California Genealogy Jamboree is coming up in a few days.  I will be out of town and not able to attend. 

If you would like to follow along with the happenings or watch a live feed of some of the classes you can follow Randy Seaver's posts on his blog, Genea-Musings http://www.geneamusings.com/

Randy is a long time member of SDGS and a well known blogger.

There's even a mobile app to help you keep up with events.  Here is a link to Randy's post about the mobile app http://www.geneamusings.com/2015/05/first-look-at-scgs-genealogy-jamboree.html

 
Other society members will also be at the Jamboree and I'm sure they'll be Tweeting and posting on Facebook too.

If you're going, have fun and I hope I'll see you next year.  

See you soon,
Diane

MAY 9, 2015 - MONTHLY MEETING



Join us as Nancy Loe presents “Coming to America: Castle Garden, Ellis Island, and Immigrant Ancestors”
at our May Monthly Meeting

Follow in the footsteps of your immigrant ancestors who approached America’s “front doors to freedom” through Castle Garden or Ellis Island in the 19th and 20th centuries. Learn about their experiences as they moved from entries on a ship’s manifest to an inspector’s record book in the massive Registry Room. Even if your ancestors arrived at other U.S. ports, these sessions will help you discover what life was like for new immigrants, what records survive, and what you will find if you visit Castle Garden and Ellis Island today. Nancy Loe, MA, MLS, is a professional archivist, librarian, and genealogist. Nancy has managed archives and genealogy collections in public and academic libraries, including serving as director of special collections and archives at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo for nearly three decades. In addition to directing NEH projects to digitize archives for researchers, Nancy has appeared on PBS's American Experience and California Gold, and at Rootstech and Jamboree.

Her Web site, sassyjanegenealogy.com, features blog posts and genealogy guides on search strategies, primary sources, and organizing genealogy research. Nancy is working on her own family tree in Norway, Sweden, Scotland, Austria, and Prussia, as well as the United States.
