Local Resources


Presenter Susi Pentico

In this class we discuss the San Diego area libraries, why they are essential, search techniques you can use for the library, how to find the right library, and what the libraries contain. We show how to use searching aids such as WORLDCAT and PERSI and how to prepare for your library visit.  The resources available at the San Diego City Public Library, the San Diego County Library, the Carlsbad Public Library, independent Libraries such as Coronado and Escondido, and university libraries like UCSD and San Diego State are detailed



Ancestry.com



Presenter Diane Gould Hall

The objective of this class is to discuss various functions and capabilities of Ancestry.com. The presentations is a combination of Power Point slides and live demonstration of the Ancestry.com program, with an emphasis on the latter. Since this class will be held twice this year, we will discuss different functions and capabilities at each session. Those include; but are not limited to the following:

--New functions and changes

--Functions that may not be well known by current users; but are very helpful in conducting research.

--A periodic review of the most useful and popular functions of Ancestry.com.

--Due to the rapid growth in the use of DNA in genealogy and the importance of Ancestry’s DNA testing and software tools, we spend some time discussing them.
