CAGC Meeting: Sunday, TBD (April mtg cancelled due to COVID19) at 1:30 pm-Speaker Annette Gathright Topic: “How do I find the record for my ancestor? I know the name and a place!” @ Jagerhaus Restaurant-2525 E. Ball Road, Anaheim
With an abundance of caution indicated by the current health related situation in the United States, and the recommendations of the government, we are cancelling the April 5th meeting. No one knows what the situation brings, and until we have more visibility we need to make sure we are not part of the problem and our members are not put in harms way. We do have two programs planned when it makes sense to get back to normal. With that in mind, the info for our next meeting is included in this notice. We will keep you apprised of what will be happening in regard to our group. Meanwhile, take care, follow the governments recommendations and keep healthy.
Annette and the CAGC Board Of Directors
Topic: “How do I find the record for my ancestor? I know the name and a place!” Finally you have found where your ancestor came from, and you have their name and an estimated birth date, but now you want to find the record and get all the details about him. This means you need to find the archive where the records are held and then the book they reside in. This presentation will provide several differ ways of finding that archive, and then how to find that record.
