Meeting of the Writing Group
The Writing Group will meet on Wednesday, May 11th, 2016 at the LDS Church, starting at 10:30 am.
Bring any writing you have done and share.
You don't have to stop researching your genealogy to join the Writers Group. You can be the spouse (or friend) of the researcher in your family. You don't have to come to every meeting....come when you can. If you don't write down the stories you have heard or been told in your family.....who will? Not sure how you want to write your story? We will discuss different possibilities. You do it your way with as much help as you want. We will have some pros join us with their ideas. Come with your ideas.....but COME.
Please contact Susan Trumbull (415-897-1617) or Shirley Hudson for more details

Note that our General Meetings have been switched to the 4th Thursday of the month.
The Genealogical Society General meetings are open to the public, with no admission fee. Feel free to drop in! Bring your friends as everyone is welcome. Come early and ask your burning genealogical questions of other members before the meeting.
We meet on the 4th Thursday of every month, with a couple of exceptions. November's meeting is held on the 3rd Thursday, due to Thanksgiving. There is no general meeting in May, due to our Annual Picnic, nor in December, due to the holidays and our Winter Holiday Party.
Annually, several of our regularly scheduled meetings have a certain focus: April, we hold our Annual General Meeting and Elections (but there's usually a presentation also); May of each year we hold an Anniversary Celebration or Annual Picnic; and in September, we have a workshop.
Villa Marin has wireless Internet access! Be sure to bring your laptop computer so you can follow along with the presentation.
