"Road Block: Where Do I Go From Here?"
 
“Road Block: Where Do I Go From Here?” addresses what happens when we hit a road block or brick wall in our research, how to look at the challenge, ideas before you begin to attack the problem, including determining what you need to find and looking for overlooked clues. It then presents several ideas and other sources that may not have been thought of to research, interspersing the sources with specific examples, showing how one can get back on track again.
 
Linda Serna been involved with genealogy in researching and writing family stories for over 30 years. Just recently, she was honored to work on the PBS program Genealogy Roadshow. Currently, Linda is a member of the Southern California Chapter of the Association of Professional Genealogists (SCCAPG), the Genealogical Speakers Guild (GSG), the California State Genealogical Alliance (CSGA), the Polish Genealogical Society (PGS-CA), and the Genealogical Society of Hispanic America (GSHA-CA) as well as being Vice President of Programs for the Orange County California Genealogical Society (OCCGS).

"Finding Family in Digital Newspaper Collections"
 
Newspapers offer a broad range of information about our families. They reveal information that may not have been recorded anywhere else. While genealogists commonly use them to find marriages and deaths, newspapers also published stories about social happenings, legal matters, travel, advertisements, and important community events that shaped our ancestors’ day-to-day lives. Digital newspaper collections have proliferated in recent years, and are searchable by name, keyword, or date. Come learn how to use this powerful new tool to uncover fascinating stories about your families.
 
Judy Janes is a past President of the Ventura County Genealogical Society, and currently serves on the Executive Board. Judy is a third-generation Californian who has been doing genealogical research for 27 years. She has successfully tracked several of her 17th century immigrant ancestors back to their roots in France, Holland, England, and Germany.

1:00 pm to 4:00 pm
Camarillo Public Library, 4101 E. Las Posas Rd, Camarillo, CA
Presenter: Susan Morris
 
"New Discovery of Native Peoples of San Nicolas Island In Nineteenth Century Los Angeles"
 
Susan Morris, a local researcher and writer, will discuss new research into the 1835 removal of native peoples from San Nicolas Island (the Nicoleños) and give details about their lives in the growing city of Los Angeles. Her presentation is titled, Finding the Lone Woman’s People: the Nicoleños in Los Angeles.

The story of the Lone Woman of San Nicolas Island has fascinated people for generations and formed the basis for the popular children’s book, Island of the Blue Dolphins. In 1835, the Nicoleños were removed from their island home, except for one woman, who remained on the island for 18 years. In 1853, she sailed to Santa Barbara with George Nidever. Efforts were made to find people who could communicate with her, but she died seven weeks later, unable to fully share her story.

Morris will discuss new research using provincial Mexican papers, Los Angeles documents, American records, and church registers, which identified the Lone Woman’s people in Los Angeles. At least five men, women, and children are confirmed or are likely to have come to Los Angeles from San Nicolas Island in 1835. One Nicoleño, a 5 year-old boy who was given the name Tomas, was alive and living on Spring St. when the Lone Woman was brought to Santa Barbara in 1853.

Susan Morris is a researcher and writer who has been involved in Channel Islands research since 1987. She has participated in field studies on seven of the eight Channel Islands, working on archaeology, paleontology, geology, and biology projects. Morris was the principal investigator of a cave-associated archaeological site survey in Wreck Canyon, Santa Rosa Island. Her recent focus has been historical research on events related to the life of the Lone Woman of San Nicolas Island.
