President’s Letter

This season has gone by way too fast. Our last speaker of the year was Wayne Rogers speaking on “Lineage Societies & Huguenots.” Unfortunately, Wayne did such a thorough job on lineage societies that we did not have time for his research on Huguenots. . .perhaps another time.

Thanks goes out to all officers and committee chairmen for their valuable assistance throughout the year: to Denise for her thorough minutes of both general and board meetings and her new function as webmaster; to Ina for her accurate and informative treasurer’s reports; to Dottie Bessares for her beautiful and scrumptious refreshments; Mary Williams for keeping our name badges current and in order; Lee Nichols for Publicity; and Gary for his excellent member newsletters.

We will be having informal discussion meetings this summer on the third Saturday of each month at 10:00 a.m.: that is June 16, July 21 and August 18. The meetings will be held at Gail Goetz’s Club House at the Villa De Las Flores Country Club in Palm Springs just off Golf Club Drive, east of Gene Autry Trail and north of Highway 111. (I clocked it, the entrance is .4 of a mile north of or Hwy. 111.) A map is provided below.

Take time this summer to review your family history research and make necessary additions and/or corrections. As for me, I’m heading to the Hemet Family History Center to use their high-speed picture scanner.

Our next formal meeting is Saturday, September 1, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. We meet in the Learning Center of the Palm Springs Library, 300 Sunrise Way, Palm Springs, at the SE corner of Baristo Road and Sunrise Way.

Please join us.
