Readers in and near Sacramento will enjoy an Internet genealogy program at the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of Sacramento (JGSS), on Monday, September 14.
Speaker Jerry Unruh will present "Using the Internet for Genealogy," at 7pm, at the Albert Einstein Residence Center, 1935 Wright St., Sacramento.
A longtime member of the Placer County Genealogical Society, Unruh will demonstrate how you can effectively search for ancestors on the Internet. Although the Web contains a vast and growing body of information, not all of it is about our ancestors.
He will show what you can do to find the information you know must be there, and share his own procedures and techniques.
A Loomis, CA resident, he's been researching his family for more than 25 years. Early on, he wrote his own genealogy program when the few available programs didn't meet his needs. Eventually, he switched to Family Tree Maker to more easily exchange data with family members.
He's been a member of the Placer County Genealogical Society for 20 years, and served as president for three years. Currently, he is the society's webmaster, newsletter editor and has been supporting its Family Tree Maker User Group for several years.
