Meetings are held in the Library Learning Center at 10:00 a.m. You do not need to be a member to attend.

President’s Letter

On 3 October Sara Cochran helped us while “Hopping Down the Paper Trail”. She showed that records our ancestors left behind often lead us to other records, and sometimes take us down a rabbit hole. We learned how to scour those records for the next clue, and how to prioritize those clues so that you stay on track.

This past month I’ve been in touch with some distant cousins researching families on whom I had little or no information. It is indeed interesting sharing facts and stories with people we may (sadly) never meet. I encourage you to reach out!

Please join us on 7 November when one of our favorite speakers, Jean Wilcox Hibben will tell us about  “Deliveries in the Rear: Getting Family History thru the Back Door”.
Using alternative, often unexpected or overlooked details, to research family history. Humorous in parts; good resources recommended.

Our face-to-face meeting are still on hold as we wait for permission to once again meet at the Palm Springs Public Library.

If you plan to join us next month via Zoom, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE sign in BEFORE 9:30 a.m.

You may contact the president at sunnysondra@gmail.com for more information or to be placed on our invitee list.
