Those of you who make a New Years resolution to do more on your family history in 2011 can get a good start if you live on the California Central Coast. On Saturday, January 8th, the San Luis Obispo County Genealogical Society will have its first monthly meeting of the new year. Featured will be two presentations by our own Cafi Cohen:
Up Your Game: Genealogy Educational Opportunities; and
What I Learned at Samford.
For directions and more information, visit the SLOCGS site.
Unfortunately I will be unable to attend because I will be at the Midwinter meeting of the American Library Association in San Diego. I'll have to make do with attending a day long workshop for genealogy librarians on Friday, hosting the semiannual genealogy dinner on Saturday night and chairing the meeting of the Genealogy Committee on Sunday morning. The Friday session will be an opportunity to hear nationally know speakers:
Drew Smith, MLS, faculty at University of Southern Florida and one of the “Genealogy Guys”;
David Rencher, MLS, Director of the Libraries Division of the Family History Department of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints;
Ron Arons, Author of WANTED! U.S. Criminal Records; and
Curt Witcher, MLS, Manager, Historical Genealogy Department, Allen County Public Library
I hope to see all of my Central Coast genealogy colleagues in early February.
