What's On the Menu

Some of the wonderful things happening at our society include our upcoming DNA Seminar in October (find more info on our Seminar page), speakers James Baker in September ("Elementary Dear Watson," Solving Problems with Clues You Already Have), and Kathryn Marshall in October ("Rebranding Lives"), in addition to our Ancestor's Night in November. We also have several special interest groups, so come by a meeting to find out more about those!

Our society houses a number of wonderful resources in the Special Collections Room at the main branch of the library in Modesto. Need help with your genealogy, or just want to see what we have? Stop by on Mondays between 10 and 3 and one of our society members will be there to help you. (times are subject to change based on the availability of our members, but this is generally true)

We look forward to seeing you at a meeting! And a HUGE thank you Bev Johnson for lining up our great speakers for the last two years.

Stephen P Morse:        One Step Webpages: A Hodgepodge of Lesser Known Gems”. 
We are fortunate to have the opportunity to spend another evening with Stephen P Morse, nationally recognized for all things genealogy.  A speaker in high demand, we are fortunate to have him spend an evening with us.  Steve’s program will address “One Step Webpages: A Hodgepodge of Lesser Known Gems”.  I suspect that in the question and answer period, you just may find the hook you were looking for.
