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.

Bio:

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.
