Holiday Season Member Share
Saturday, December 15
Holiday Season Member Share  (Monthly Meetings)
9:30 am
The Society’s annual Holiday Season Member Share is the program for the last meeting of 2018. It will feature three presentations by Society members. Karen Ramsdell and Holly Snyder, mother-daughter geanealogists,  travelled to Germany and Switzerland this summer on their own version of “Who Do You Think You Are?” Preplanning and a bit of serendipity made it a trip of a lifetime with discoveries and unexpected friendships. Betsy Green will share her latest “Way Back When” book with the Best Stories of the Year in Santa Barbara in 1918. Finally, Pat Caird will tell her story about how she became interested in genealogy and how an unusual book has inspired her. With a little travel, a little local history, and some inspiration, this promises to be an inspiring meeting.
In addition, we also encourage you to think of the tune “My Favorite Things” and consider bringing to the meeting one or more of your own family treasures to share with the Society:
•Favorite heritage tradition
•Inspiring or Holiday-themed ancestor story
•Treasured photographs or other images
•Memorabilia (medal, ornament, quilt, etc.) with the story behind it
•Projects – Pedigree charts, scrap books, completed books or “in progress” memoir – to inspire your fellow genealogists
And, any celebration is more fun with food, so we would like to encourage you to bake a favorite cookie or cake recipe or buy a special holiday treat to add to the refreshment table to share with your fellow members for this special holiday meeting. Forget the calories and indulge! We look forward to celebrating the season with you and your guests. Special Interest Groups meet at 9:30 am for New Member & Beginning Genealogy, Civil War Genealogy, Writers’ Support Group, German Ancestry, Italian Genealogy, Jewish Genealogy, French Canadian Genealogy, Scandinavian Genealogy, Discussion and Tips, Early CA and Hispanic Roots, and DNA.  The monthly meeting starts at 10:30 and the featured speaker starts at 11:00 am. Come join us. You do not need to be a member to enjoy this wonderful free presentation. The Sahyun Genealogical Library will be open following this general meeting from 1:00 - 4:00 PM
