Welcome to the website of CGS ! ————-
NEXT EVENT: 5 June 2017 (to be held in High Desert Room)
From Northern California: JANICE SELLERS!
“Doing Irish Research Online”
Description: Once upon a time, searching for Irish ancestors required
learning the townland of origin, or at least the county, before you
could cross the pond. While that is still helpful, it is often now
possible to find a family without that information by using the wealth
of records that have gone online in the last couple of years. This
talk will discuss some of the many resources available online for
Irish research and will also touch on similar resources that could be
available for other countries.
Janice M. Sellers is a professional genealogist who is passionate
about her work. She loves to research her own family and everyone
else’s. She specializes in Jewish, black, forensic, and newspaper
research, edits three genealogy publications, and serves on the boards
of three genealogy societies. Check out her website! Return here for copy of handout.
As always, GUESTS are WELCOME! —————————
