Last minute decision?

The 36th Annual Ancestor Roundup Genealogical Seminar is being held this Saturday, January 21. Some folks couldn’t decide ahead of time as to whether they could come or not. Let me help you decide….

The word on the street says it will not rain Saturday. And there are indeed seats still available at the conference. All you have to do to attend is show up at the LDS Church in Seaside between 8:00 am-8:30 am with $20! You can register easily and no one will notice you because it is always crowded at the “last minute desk”!  Lunch is included! Last class ends between 3:30-4:00 pm. If you have the flu or are attending an inauguration event, you are excused. Otherwise….

Hints:

Parking is tough if you are late. Try to car-pool. And remember, the Church is on a corner –> check the other side!

You can connect to Wi-Fi when in the building, the Name and Password is provided in the building. We do ask, though, that you silence your phone while in classes. Vibrate is OK.

Addicted to caffeine? None is provided. I bring my thermos and leave it in the car.

Need a mid morning boost? I also leave an apple in my car!

Tender bottom? Some chairs are hard. I bring a padded sports cushion!

Don’t forget to bring something to take notes with! Pencils and pens are not provided. I am always surprised by people trying to borrow my pencil! Yes, it is OK to bring your iPad too.

April 2, 2015 – Monthly Meeting: ” All About Lineage Societies”, by Suzanne Schultz, Leonora Branca, & Sam Griffith

Lineage Societies – There is the DAR, SAR, NSCDA and GSMD.  Do you know what they all are?  Does your family tree have “special people” in it?  Revolutionary War heroes related to you? Mayflower passenger descendant?  Are you a Colonial Dame? Why should you join a lineage society if you do have these ancestors in your tree?  What are the different classifications?  What are the different requirements to join? What do lineage Societies do?  Come to this meeting to find out about the different lineage societies, and why have they become so popular. These three speakers should be able to answer most any question you were afraid to ask.

Suzanne Schultz – Member of the Daughters of the American Revolution “DAR”. Served as Registrar and Vice Regent for Commodore Sloat Chapter, DAR. She is the DAR Volunteer Genealogy Consultant.

Leonora Branca – Member of Five Lineage Societies – Past State Regent of California DAR, written two family history books “Our Italian Heritage”, & “The NJ Roots of Ethel Dilts Howard”

Sam Griffith – Vice President (& Past President) of Monterey Bay Chapter, Sons of the American Revolution “SAR”. He has also been President of five other organizations on the Monterey Peninsula.

I want to attend just to find out what a Colonial Dame is!  Actually, I have four Revolutionaries in my tree, and one who fought with the British!  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.
