President’s Letter

One of our favorite speakers, Jean Wilcox Hibben, visited us again on 7 November, speaking to us on  “Deliveries in the Rear: Getting Family History thru the Back Door”. Sometimes the most valuable information is acquired by researching correlating families to one’s direct line ancestry. This presentation was designed to acquaint folks with the value of using “”the back door” in our genealogical research. Using the family information of cousins, aunts, uncles, etc., one can piece together the lives of the entire family unit. Even using information about neighbors and historical events can unearth helpful data in one’s roots pursuits.

On 5 December 2020 Christine Cohen will be speaking to us on “The Basics of Probate Records”. This should be an extremely interesting topic. . .a new field for me.

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.
