Happy August to all! While this is traditionally a holiday and travel month for many, we know there are plenty of genealogically-minded folks who will be here in the East Bay this month. And we have plenty of events to tempt you! In addition to our continuing Thursday night free lectures, you may want to check out the following:
August 10: Hear Oakland Family Search Library director Ralph Severson discuss how to research Portuguese ancestry in "Proud to Be Portuguese."
August 14: Jane Lindsey hosts "CGS Day at the Oakland Family Search Library": all are invited to learn about the vast free public genealogy resources available at the OFSL.
August 17: Maureen Hanlon offers tips on "Finding Your Immigrant Ancestor's Birthplace" using U.S. records.
August 24: Chris Pattillo and Theresa Murphy lead a hands-on workshop for those who want to organize their family history in "Make a Book - the Easy Way."
