Jane’s Report from Sacramento

Posted by:

CGS President, Jane Lindsey, shared a cup of coffee and enjoyed an afternoon with ten Sacramento area members at a meeting hosted by Janet Feil at the Belle Cooledge Branch Library yesterday, May 7, 2008. Elaine Adamson brought her cousin, Pat Procida, who became the newest member of CGS.

The group had an informal discussion about upcoming events at the society. Members had several suggestions which Jane will report to CGS:

  • Sell handouts from major CGS events. Offer the syllabus to those who cannot attend the conference for a fee plus mailing costs.
  • Create Surname and Locale sections on the CGS Web site to allow members to network with others with similar interests.
  • Provide meetings summaries for members who could not attend. Jane suggested that members check the CGS blog or Steve Danko’s Genealogy Blog if they miss a meeting. Steve has posted extensive reports on CGS meetings that he has attended.

Several members also expressed an interest in forming a carpool for a day of research to the CGS Library.
