7:00 PM "Writing Your Ancestor’s Life Story” Robert Givens
"They say that when a person dies a library burns. Family History work should be more than the dates and places of a person's life. To bring a person to life we need to tell their story. This presentation will give you suggestions on how to take a writing project from the beginning to completion. Can you actually write an ancestor's life story? Of course, you can! Come and learn how."
General meeting at 7:oo p.m. with program to follow.
Trinity Presbyterian Church
1600 Carver Rd.
The Genealogical Society of Stanislaus County voted
last spring to support a Poinsettia fundraising effort. Orders have been coming
in already! Please support this fundraising
effort. As your treasurer, I can say with confidence, that this activity is
vital to the success and vitality of our great organization. You may be
surprised to learn that your annual dues make up only 50% of the costs incurred
by your organization.
Remember, they make great gifts for friends and
family, and a lovely addition to your own home decor.
You can pre-order your beautiful poinsettia plants for
early December pick-up, by completing this form and either mailing the form,
bringing it to the November meeting. If you have any questions please call
Sharon Hawley-Crum at 209-838-2118. Thanks
in advance for your support of our organization!
Please copy and paste the following into a word doc and print for submission:
