Thanksgiving at CGS!

Wine Reception at CGS for Volunteers
Hear Their Stories and Visit the Book Sale
Saturday, November 8, 2008
1:00 p.m.

California Genealogical Society Library
2201 Broadway at 22nd, Oakland, Lower Level

Please join the CGS board of directors for a special wine and nibbles reception to honor our volunteers.

We are so thankful for all the wonderful volunteers at the society who carry out for CGS many kinds of significant and valuable projects, while serendipitously making many discoveries for their own research. Please join us for this delightful celebratory event. Volunteers will be entertaining us with stories of their greatest, best and most surprising discoveries as well as sharing how they assist the society and its members.

Our volunteers are perfect examples of the many rewards and benefits one can gain from being an active part of a genealogical society. Not only have the volunteers improved the society and helped many people conduct successful research, they have made their own discoveries while working at the library. They are the proof that there is so much more to genealogy than solitary online searching.

Everyone will have nametags listing areas of research to help us connect. To acknowledge our volunteers and all the work they do, we’re celebrating them with wine and nibbles and hearing their stories, and you are invited to be part of the fun!

***Please note: An encore presentation of Breaking Down Brick Walls had been scheduled for this date. The presentation has been postponed until early in 2009. If you would like to submit a research problem for consideration, please email Carolyn Steinberg.
