Jetlag caused me to miss the link to gen-blogger colleague Steve Danko's San Francisco Bay area gen calendar here. Apologies to Steve.

1pm, Saturday, September 13
Ron Arons: Best Bet Web Sites for Genealogical Research.
Click here for CGS details.

Arons will explore many "best bet" Web sites that allow researchers to find materials online, including historical documents, newspapers and articles, living people, maps and photos, foreign language translators and aids and provide numerous examples of how the Internet has worked for him. He'll slip in some tales from his new book, The Jews of Sing Sing, described as "the true story of Jewish gangsters and other shady characters who served time 'up the river' and the New York Jewish community’s response."

1pm, Sunday, September 21
