2 April 2011 Bonita Library Free Genealogy Seminar 10 to 2 pm

2 April 2011 Bonita Library Genealogy Seminar FREE FREE FREE 10 am to 2 pm

Mr. Michael Murphy and Mr Del Stevens are presenting us some interesting facts that we can apply to our research. I am sure they will be sharing lots of interesting and fun information for us.

There will be talking done about Wills, Probates, and things related to that will help enlighten us for knowledge. There will be talking shared about Insurance and how it may affect our research.

We ask often what if they suffered a fire, a flood a loss of home? Are there records to learn more. I have found in some states yes. I am anxious to learn more about Insurance.

I am really excited to hear a lawyer's prospective on the Wills, Probates, and what it does to affect our research also. We have lots of exposure to these documents but I am sure this angle will help us have a new prospective on researching them.

There will be opportunity drawings and other activities to browse through also.
Forms and books and computer knowledge will be shared.

IF you would like to register ahead do so at our CVGS website.

5 March 2011 Shirley Becker -Bonita Library - Census Clues

Census Clues by Shirley Becker Bonita Library 12-2:30 pm Saturday
4375 Bonita Road, Bonita, Ca 91902

Shirley will be discussing the early census's and how to find the clues to unscramble the
data that is in these early census.

Shirley writes:

My talk will be on working with the first Five Censuses Taken for the United States. At first glance they are discouraging as there doesn't seem to be very much
information, but appearances are deceiving. With patience and perseverance facts can be discovered and ancestors found. By tracking children and ages within
locations your ancestors may be discovered. Of course it helps if you have the ancestor in question found in a later census so you do have an approximate age and
idea of where he is located. I will have a handout, but would like anyone interested to contact me via email or text or call me at 619 318 2790 so I know how many
to make for the workshop.
