Upcoming Meeting Agendas:
October 20, 2015 British Research, Sans Ireland
Presenter: Christine Green
The United States has required the keeping of passenger arrival records since 1 January 1820 but before that date it is more difficult to find the immigrants date of entry into the US, and the place of origin. Chris will explore the variety of records available between the early 1600s and 1820 for those immigrants from various parts of the British Isles. Not all the original records are in the United States!
Christine Bell Green had researched her ancestors for over twelve years, and clients’ families for the past three years. A former marketing researcher with a PhD in Biochemistry, Chris holds a Professional Learning Certificate in Genealogical Studies from the University of Toronto. She is a graduate of ProGen, the Institute of Genealogical and Historical Research at Stamford, the Salt Lake Institute of Genealogy and Pittsburgh Research Institute of Genealogy (methodology and Genetic Genealogy courses.) She teaches genealogy at Palo Alto Adult School, is the current president at San Mateo County Genealogy Society and enjoys giving genealogy talks throughout the Bay Area.
November 17, 2015 Annual Finger-Food Pot Luck AND Show-N-Tell AND Election of Officers for 2016
Who?: Everyone Who Is In Attendance
Everyone looks forward to this meeting each year. People will bring in their favorite “finger food” for everyone to sample. We then sit around munching while we share something from our family history, be it an old photo, heirloom, story, research discovery, etc. Some of the things brought in to share are Sooooo priceless, at least to a genealogist! Oh, and we also vote on the officers for next year’s Executive Board.
