Another Society Bites the Dust

Posted by:

Elizabeth at Little Bytes of Life reports that her local genealogical society left no forwarding address in her blog post Another One Bites the Dust.

I took a look and the Lompoc Valley Genealogical Society Web site is still online and even includes a membership plea to “Join an exciting and involved society.” The telltale tip is the “last revised” date at the bottom of the page: 18 August 2002.

Elizabeth was looking for “fellowship” which is what we are quite good at here in Oakland. Does the California Genealogical Society have any members who live down Elizabeth’s way??

    LOL – thanks for the “plug,” Kathryn!

    I did see the LVGS web site a while back, and at first glance it looks like the group is still alive and healthy. I’m fairly certain that no one from the group knows it’s still there (considering that they did not know that a monthly meeting notice was still running in the newspaper). Guess I should probably check into it.

    BTW, if there are any “joiners” down in the northern Santa Barbara County area, please do contact me!

    Will do. I’m so glad that we will get to meet at Jamboree! See you next month.
