October Membership Meeting: Remembering World War I

Saturday, October 12, 2013
1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

California Genealogical Society Library
2201 Broadway, Suite LL2
Oakland, California 94612

Do you have family stories, photos, or memorabilia from World War I? Was there a WWI soldier, sailor, marine, nurse, journalist or ambulance driver in your family? Did an ancestor contribute to the war effort from home?

If you haven't been to a membership meeting your next chance is coming in October. Members are invited to bring a bag lunch to the Sherman Room at noon, Saturday, October 12, 2013, for a chance to meet and chat with board members, new members, and friends. Bring a dessert or beverage to share and enjoy the camaraderie of folks who love genealogy!

The meeting will start promptly at 1:00 p.m. Director Diana Edwards will start things off with announcements of upcoming society events and news from the library.

The focus of the October meeting will be the 2014 Centennial of the Start of World War I. Members are invited to bring their World War I ephemera and ancestor stories about the Great War. Letters, photos, service and military records, and other WWI era documents are especially welcome. Members with research experience in military history will be here to discuss your research questions.

Please email Diana Edwards if you have something to share.

We look forward to a vibrant and fun event!
