Coming Up:

 THIS MONTH:
  November 15         Janice Sellers (webinar)- "Finding and Using Newspapers in Your Genealogical Research"

*********************************Our meeting for NOVEMBER  only will be in the Fireside Room at Gateway ********************************

This will be a webinar on the large screen with the opportunity to ask questions of the speaker.


Newspapers are valuable in genealogical research because you can find information about births, marriages, deaths, moves, business, nationalizations, court cases, and more. Millions of pages of the world's newspapers are now accessible online, but there is no one place to find them all. This class provides an overview of what is available online and techniques to help improve your chances of finding information about your relatives.


Sellers is a member of The Association of Professional Genealogists as well as numerous other genealogical organizations; is a well known speaker; and has published many articles, as well as conducting research. She specializes in Jewish and African American genealogy; newspaper research; dual citizenship; and forensic genealogy. She has been on the staff of LDS FamilySearch Centers since 2000.


Following the meeting, members and guests are invited to attend the optional, no host lunch at the Creekside Clubhouse. Lunch reservations need to be made before 5:00 PM on Tuesday, November 12. To do so, please contact Sue Fernstrom at 510-215-0873 or e-mail her at [email protected].
