The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura Countuy (JGSCV) will hold a general meeting, co–sponsored with Temple Adat Elohim, on Monday, December 8, 2008 at Temple Adat Elohim 2420 E. Hillcrest Drive, Thousand Oaks, 7:00-9:30 p.m.
Program: "One-Step Webpages: A Potpourri of Genealogical Search Tools"
The One-Step website started out as an aid for finding passengers in the Ellis Island database. Shortly afterwards it was expanded to help with searching in the 1930 census. Over the years, it has continued to evolve and today includes over 150 web-based tools divided into 14 separate categories ranging from genealogical searches to astronomical calculations to last-minute bidding on e-bay. This presentation will describe the range of tools available and give the highlights of each one.
Speaker: Stephen Morse is the creator of the One-Step Website for which he has received both the Lifetime Achievement Award and the Outstanding Contribution Award from the International Association of Jewish Genealogical Societies, Award of Merit from the National Genealogical Society and more. Steve's one-step program has revolutionized how to do genealogical searches in large databases!
Everyone is eligible for the drawing of fantastic genealogical prizes for those who renew their JGSCV membership or join for 2009. You must be present to win! Light refreshments will be served celebrating Chanukah and our membership drive. All attendees receive a genealogical gift!
There is no charge to attend the meeting. Anyone may join JGSCV. Annual dues are $25 for an individual and $30 for a family. Dues paid good through December 2009.
