Southern California: Steve Morse, Dec. 6

A plethora of online resources helps genealogists locate appropriate information. The amazing Steve Morse, of course, has done more than his share to make things easier for all family history researchers.

If you live in the southern California area of Ventura County and Conejo Valley, Steve will be speaking at the local Jewish genealogical society at 1.30pm, Sunday, December 6.

Join the members and friends of the JGS of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County (JGSCV) and welcome him at this program at Temple Adat Elohim in Thousand Oaks.

He'll be speaking on "One-Step Webpages: A Hodge Podge of Lesser Known Gems." With so many utilities on his site, these talks help to spotlight items that are not as well known as others.

The program will describe the range of available tools and provide the highlights of each. The functions range from genealogical search problems to identify theft to DNA questions.

Steve, of course, is the creator of the One-Step Website. For his work, he has been given the IAJGS Lifetime Achievement Award and its Outstanding Contribution Award, the National Genealogical Society Award of Merit and others. His one-step program has revolutionized performing genealogical searches in large databases!

The program will also celebrate Chanukah, and everyone renewing their JGSCV membership or joining for 2010 will be eligible for the genealogical prizes drawing.
