It's Story Time at this Week's San Francisco Special Interest Group Meeting

Sandra Britt-Huber and Nancy Hart Servin, co-facilitators of the San Francisco Special Interest Group (SIG), sent this reminder about tomorrow's meeting.

Saturday, March 16, 2013
10:00 a.m.

California Genealogical Society Library
2201 Broadway, Suite LL2
Oakland, California 94612
The March SF-SIG meeting will be a group discussion – it's story time! 
Please come and be prepared to bring a slice-of-life story about your San Francisco heritage family or research interest to share at our meeting this Saturday. Compliment your story by bringing pictures or records to enhance your story-telling experience with others. 
It’s all about sharing what we know about San Francisco to broaden and build our knowledge. If your story has a puzzling piece that you can’t quite fit together, the group
may be able to help you find the missing connection.  
Please bring your copy of Nancy Peterson's Raking the Ashes: Genealogical Strategies for Pre-1906 San Francisco Research for reference.  
We'll also be sharing our experience at the recent San Francisco History Expo. Lot's of people stopped by the California Genealogical Society table and there was considerable interest in our SF-SIG.  
We are looking forward to seeing you this Saturday!
