San Joaquin Genealogical Society announces its last Beginners' Workshop for 2013.
On Saturday, November 16, member Sylvia Perez will speak on "How to Research Your Mexican Ancestry" and will share her observations on her recent research and travel. She will describe how she located her Mexican ancestors and some of their descendants living right here in Northern California. In addition to advice on how to start your own family history research, Sylvia will review ideas on how to collaborate with these distant cousins, once you meet them, to achieve further research goals.
After the presentation, Society volunteers will be available for your genealogy research questions, so bring whatever data you already have: birth, marriage, death dates of ancestors and where they lived. To access the wi-fi made available for this workshop session, you may either bring your own laptop, or use one of the library's laptops.
