Past-president Jane Knowles Lindsey participated in a free event on December 1, 2011 at the Walnut Creek Library. She was one of four panelists discussing a myriad of resources for tracking down family history including online databases, where to search for vital records, and genealogy libraries. The program – Digging into Your Past: Tips and Clues on How to Pursue Your Ancestry – also featured Bill Slocum, former Director of the Oakland Regional Family History Center, Martha Whittaker, former Senior Librarian at the Sutro Library, and author Diane DeGolia. The entire ninety-minute program is viewable on YouTube.
Jane's portion on breaking down brick walls starts about 1:03:50.
