2019 VCGS Trip to the Family History Library in Salt Lake City  (Trips to Salt Lake City)
Family History Library, Salt Lake City, Utah
VCGS is going to Salt Lake City in 2019 for another research trip at the Family History Library. You will be researching in millions of records which are not now online, and may never be, due to contractual and other restrictions. You can also consult with professional genealogists, free, on your problem ancestors. Think you are not ready? There will be a research planning class in January to get you prepared, and the date for that will be announced soon.
 
Registrations are coming in so quickly that our room block at the Salt Lake Plaza Hotel is nearly full. The room block at our discounted rate closes February 1. If people decide at the last minute they’d like to go, it may be impossible to negotiate additional rooms at our special rates of $92 standard queen or $102 deluxe queen, which is about 1/3 less than normal.
 
If you are thinking of going, but are holding off for Santa Claus, please call the Plaza directly at 800-366-3684 and ask for the VCGS room block to reserve your room now. Please act now for lowest airline fares.
 
Remember, the hotel donates free rooms to VCGS for our annual seminar silent auction based on the number of rooms we use in March. Your stay pays VCGS and helps with activities like our great monthly speakers and annual seminar.
 
Please contact Pat Thomas at Thomas.genealogical@gmail.com for more information.

Conejo Valley Genealogical Society - A Trio of Topics  (Other Genealogical Events)
6:00 pm
Grant R Brimhall Library, 1401 E Janss Rd, Thousand Oaks
A TRIO OF TOPICS
 
Last September, we conducted a Six-Pack of short Topics, after which, you chose the three you wanted to hear more of. This month, we will provide you with an expanded program of the following topics:
 
The Waterways of America and How They Influenced Your Genealogy
Georgine Herd
Many of your ancestors migrated west by following the rivers, lakes and canals. Georgine will provide you with more ways and tools to learn about how your ancestry was heavily influenced by this.
 
What’s New with Family Search
Jim Cyr

Many of us use Family Search on a routine basis. Since it is updated and modified frequently, even since our last update, it is important to know about the new ways you can help you excel in your genealogy research. We’ll learn the latest improvements!
 
When to Hire a Professional Genealogist
Pat Harmon

There comes a time in our genealogical quest when we might need an experienced, more knowledgeable professional to assist us in solving our dilemma. In the ten minutes Pat had previously, it just didn’t do justice to our needs. She’ll now be able to give us more of how we can more effectively and economically obtain the services of a professional.

Presenter: Jean Wilcox Hibben
 
"America: Land of the Farm, Home of the Plough"
 
Farmers have been the backbone of America from the first settlers until present day. Without these important people, and their families, there would not be food to eat . . . yet genealogists frequently use the phrase, “My ancestors were JUST farmers.” Just farmers? Then they were the necessary part of the population so everyone else could survive! Learn some about the farming occupation along with how to locate records of these important people; understand the vital role of your farmer forefather (and foremother . . . and all the forechildren!). Included: Some history of how America and its language have been influenced by this occupation. All levels

Jean Wilcox Hibben; PhD, MA, former So. Cal. college speech professor (MA – Speech Communication; PhD – Folklore), is a national speaker and author. A member of the DAR, she is the former director and current staff trainer for the Corona, CA Family History Center, has worked on background research for two genealogy television programs, and hosts podcasts, with a couple of other genealogists, under the moniker Genealogy Journeys® (genaandjean.blogspot.com). With over 40 years of research experience, she is a former board member of APG and current President of its So. Cal. Chapter, President of the Corona Gen. Society (until April 2019) as well as webmaster for that same organization, and has participated on a number of other society boards. Her website: circlemending.org.
 
Second presentation:
 
"Motive, Means & Opportunity: The Sad Saga of George Richards"
Speaker: Jean Wilcox Hibben
 
This case study of a man whose choices served to confuse his descendants is reconstructed in this lecture. He was there, then gone, then back – see how a variety of records unlocked his real story. From England to the US, George’s life was filled with conundrums and poor choices. See how to locate original records (not all online); separate fact from fiction; and assess evidence for accuracy.
 
All our monthly lectures and workshops are free to our members and the public.
