Yes. this Saturday we are having a normal meeting to get to meet people who work during the week and can not come to our monthly Wednesday afternoon meetings.

Yes, we are open to anyone who wishes to attend and join society we are not turning away anyone that lives in the region around ours. We have members from all over the region of San Diego County.

At the Park event in Coronado we heard," but we don't live in Chula Vista,"  Totally okay come join in the fun and learning and sharing that this society has been doing since founded.

We started with 5 then 6 then 19 then we slowly, slowly grew to what we have today which is again near 100 in members.  Our highest was 118 at one point.  Nina S. & Co, we were so excited when we almost hit 120. Nina S we sure miss you and many of the other Genealogical founding members.
May you all RIP.

Five of the founding members were cousins whom had never met before it made it a lot more fun.
