We pass this on from our friends at the LA Public Library and GSHA-SC:
We are pleased to welcome Donie Nelson of the Genealogical Society of Hispanic America - SoCal to the Central Library to give a genealogy presentation in September. Donie is also the coordinator for Hispanic Saturdays, a genealogy research group that meets the third Saturday of every month in the History & Genealogy Department at the Central Library.
Using a Timeline: Tracking One Family Across the Old Spanish Trail
Central Library, Meeting Room A
September 17, 2011, 1 pm
In this presentation you will learn how to create a timeline to organize facts, observe patterns, and achieve breakthroughs in your genealogy research. Donie Nelson of the Genealogical Society of Hispanic America - SoCal will walk you through the process as you study the family of Jose Joaquin Young and Ma. Josefa Moya, who were born in New Mexico and died in California, but traveled back and forth over the Old Spanish Trail, leaving bewildering traces for their descendants to ponder. You will discover how to create a basic timeline and how records other than baptismal, marriage and death can assist your search, adding nuance and depth to your family’s history.
