Sandra Britt-Huber sent this report from the Saturday, Jan 19, 2013, meeting of the San Francisco Special Interest Group. Thanks, Sandra!
We had a great meeting, with twenty-three members in attendance. Ted Miles, reference librarian at the San Francisco Maritime Library and husband of volunteer extraordinaire Arlene Miles) presented a talk about San Francisco maritime records and history, focusing on the Pacific Maritime 1840 - 1900.
Ted brought a volume of Lloyd's Register. Interest was high and Ted fielded lots of questions.
Ron Filion and Pam Storm did a presentation about shipping and maritime records at SFgenealogy.com. They also updated SIG members on what's new on their site: Holy Cross and Calvary Cemetary records are digitalized and the removals from Calvary to Holy Cross.
