Southern California: Beginning your research, Jan. 10

Learn how to begin your genealogy research at the next meeting of the Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County (JGSCV), on Sunday, January 10.

If you've been thinking of starting to record your family history in 2010, but just don't know where or how to start, join the group at 1.30pm at Temple Adat Elohim, Thousand Oaks.

Join Jan Meisels Allen and Debra Kay Blatt as they cover important issues. Learning how to start correctly, from experts, helps to avoid common mistakes.

Both Jan and Debra - seasoned genealogists and presenters - are JGSCV founding members and board members.

The program will cover how to begin searching family history including census and ships manifests, family stories, searching older newspapers for obituaries and articles on family businesses, what's on JewishGen.org and how to search it, including the All-Country Database, Family Finder and ShtetLinks.

Although the program is directed at beginners, there is always something to learn for researchers of every skill level.

There is no charge to attend. For more information, see the JGSCV site.
