President’s Letter

Curt Witcher, Director of the Allen County Library Genealogy Department, was our featured speaker on 5 August 2023 on “Passenger & Immigration”. I heard Curt speak in Whittier at one of their day-long seminars. He is an excellent speaker and no one can dispute the depth of his knowledge.

Curt covered three areas of the immigration pattern: Settling Down, Arriving Documents and Leaving Documents, telling us how to find these important records. He furnished us with a well laid-out three-page handout with references to guide us.

As an aside my aunt (who was 8 months younger than I) and her husband were close friends with Curt Witcher and he expressed sadness at their passing in 2019.

August was our final Zoom meeting and we will begin our live meetings once again on 2 September 2023 in the Learning Center of the Palm Springs Public Library, 300 S. Sunrise Way, Palm Springs. The meeting starts at 10:00 and usually lasts and hour to an hour and a half.

We have a great line-up of speakers for the upcoming 2023-2024 season and invite you to join us.
