Genealogy Class: Practical tips for a successful genealogy research trip

What to expect from the class
A genealogy fact-finding trip to one's ancestral home can be extremely rewarding, but also present many challenges. Join Pam Brett for this class on successful on-site research. 
She has two goals for the class.  Pam will share tips on how to plan a trip that will help you achieve your research goals, but more importantly hopes that you will gain a new understanding of the lives of your ancestors.

About the instructor
Pam has been interested in genealogy for nearly forty years---ever since she began filling in the family tree of her first-born child's baby book. 

She was finally able to begin her family tree research in 1999.  Luckily for the rest of us, Pam's ancestors were mobile which has led to her expertise in on-site fact-finding.  She's traveled through thirty-one states and the District of Columbia. 

Why does she do it?  She naturally loves combing for records throughout the U.S. because as she states, "there are many challenges, but the rewards are priceless."

The class is from 10am-12pm on Saturday, January 30th at our library, located at 2201 Broadway, in uptown Oakland.  

Pre-registration is required. Class size is limited so please register early. 

Members enjoy free admission.  Non-member admission fee is $30.00* and can be applied towards a new one year CGS membership the day of the class.

We hope to see you there!
