The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County (JGSCV) will be meeting on March 6, 2011-Sunday, 1:00 pm-5:00 pm at the Los Angles Family History Library.
Assisted Research Afternoon at the L.A. Family History Library (LAFHL)
The JGSCV March 6 meeting is a field trip to the Los Angeles Family History Library (LAFHL) i10741 Santa Monica Blvd. Los Angeles, where senior members of JGSCV and volunteers from the LAFHL will help other members with their personal genealogy, and LAFHL resources including computer assistance with many popular genealogical databases including Ancestry.com, Footnote.Com, Heritage Quest, World Vital Records and Godfrey Memorial Library on-line resources. The FHL has recently been renovated and increased the number of computers so more people can use the resources simultaneously. There are Jewish microfilms of Eastern Europe and a selection of others, and maps and gazetteers.
Barbara Algaze, volunteer at the LAFHL, and librarian for our sister society, JGSLA, will give an introduction to the resources at the LAFHL.
This meeting is open only to current dues-paid members of JGSCV although anyone may join at the door. Annual dues are $25 for an individual and $30 for a family.
The Jewish Genealogical Society of the Conejo Valley and Ventura County is dedicated to sharing genealogical information, techniques and research tools with anyone interested in Jewish genealogy and family history. There is no charge to attend the meeting.
