3 Feb 2018 Doing Research, Footnote about Jan. Library Information Meeting

How to do Research?  Improve Research Methods.

We will have our next meeting at the Bonita-Sunnyside Library 3 Feb, 1 to 4 pm.


Learn some easier steps to keep track of your research. Learn what things 
may help you to do research more efficiently. There are some ways to help you 
you may not be aware of.


The states to be discussed will be VA/WVA  since it split during the CW.


This last Saturday 6 January, we discussed Libraries and the state of Michigan for research.

We started with a library well known in Scotland and then moved to the many systems and libraries, that we are exposed to in this region. 

Taking that information you can apply it to all other areas.

Every State has a Library system and an Archives of sorts. 

Our county has many library systems and they all offer different information.

You want Maps, go the the South Branch of Chula Vista Library on 4th and Orange Ave.

You want more about military, if it has not changed since it was upgraded the Imperial Beach Library used to carry far more books on military as  does the Bonita-Sunnyside Library.

Are you aware you should be looking at the Law Libraries for data when land disputes and will disputes and child care disputes irrupted. Laws about these items are follow by all states, and many times cause changed laws.  

Are you aware you should be looking into college libraries, love them places. My favorite was Northridge where a grandson went and it was rebuilt after the earthquake. WOW, is all I can say.

Having been into two here in our area: Southwestern College and USD.  

Also there is a Genealogical Library in Carlsbad (part of the library on upper floor),  downtown San Diego, and a section in the Chula Vista Library on 4th and F St. in Chula Vista.

Would love to see the county get involved and have one also.  We live in a huge county. I think it is almost bigger than a couple of states.

Remember when unknown use google.com and ask for information on a specific library or area library.  I showed them how I put in google.com Information on Michigan Genealogy.
You can do this for each state.

Fortunately I have done much research there in the archives and they have an extensive New York
Collection.  When asked why, was told because New Yorkers basically founded Michigan.

Yes I have lines from New York that got to Iowa via Michigan.  I did not look there until that statement hit my ears and by golly there were the answers.

Those in attendance will be given the data they requested.
