Got Genealogy Academy

Marriott Courtyard Oakland Emeryville

CGS member Lisa B. Lee sent word about the upcoming, inaugural session of the Got Genealogy Academy:

This two-day, hands-on class promises to help students master the world of online genealogy, to help make doing research online second nature, and to help them find information about their ancestors they'd never found before. During the class, each student will be research his or her OWN FAMILY FILE.

The Got Genealogy Academy is the" brainchild" of Lisa, a professional genealogist and self-described "computer nerd" who once served CGS on the Board of Directors.

The PRE-REQUISITES are listed on the Web site:
1. Pedigree chart of your own family, minimum three generations, including you.
2. A basic understanding of computers.
3. A minimum of one year’s experience doing genealogy.
4. A good sense of humor - we intend to have a ton of fun while doing some serious learning.

Lisa has also generously donated a full-tuition scholarship to one lucky CGS member. The prize will be awarded at this Saturday's volunteer reception, Thanksgiving at CGS!
