Monthly Meeting – October 5 “Researching in Washington, D.C. Without Leaving Home” by Dayna Jacobs

Washington, D.C. is home to the National Archives, the Library of Congress, and the DAR Library – all treasure troves of records for genealogists, but few of us ever have the opportunity to visit these repositories in person. Come and learn how to access the records they hold without leaving home, including maps, land records, military files, newspapers, congressional records, DAR applications, Social Security, and U.S. patent records. Dayna Jacobs will share what she learned in the 2017 Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy course titled, “Researching in Washington, D.C. Without Leaving Home.”

Dayna Jacobs serves on the board of the Utah Genealogical Assoc. and is one of the five Professional Accredited for U.S. Mountain West States Research. She will also be serving another term on ICAPGen as Public Relations Chair. She has taught at the Northwest Genealogy Conference in Washington, the BYU Genealogy Conference, and the New England Regional Genealogy Conference, also with Ancestor Roundup. Dayna has been researching, teaching, and writing since 1988 and has been on staff at the Monterey, FHC since 1998, where she serves as a consultant and former Staff trainer and Asst. Director. She enjoys educating and mentoring genealogists. She has her own genealogy blog “On Granny’s Trail,” which is a resource for Western States research and beyond.

Dayna is one of our favorite speakers. She is the go-to gal at the FHC when I have questions! Don’t miss this MoCoGenSo meeting.

Doors open at 6:15 pm, the meeting starts at 7:00 pm. We’ll see you at the Family History Center, 1024 Noche Buena, Seaside, CA., left rear of building.
