Presentation: “Ways to Jumpstart Your Stalled Genealogy Research” and “PERSI (PERiodical Source Index)”
Presented by Tony Hoskins, who is the Genealogical Librarian at the Sonoma County Library and skilled at helping people consider new ways to think about their conclusions and searches. He is also conversant with PERSI, the largest subject index to Genealogical Periodical articles. Tony will tell us where and how to access PERSI and what we will find. Here’s your chance to pick up some valuable pointers and ask questions.
About our Meetings:
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 Wednesday of every month, with a couple of exceptions. November's meeting is held on the 3rd Wednesday, 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.
