Open house

Posted by:

One of the things I love about CGS is that the members are always ready to throw a party. After the move was over and the dust had settled, our volunteers were glad to celebrate and show off our new facility. The Open House was held on Thursday, April 26, 2007. The invitations looked like this and were hand delivered to all of our neighbor tenants at 2201 Broadway.

Many of our neighbors came to introduce themselves.

Several of our board members and volunteers were on hand to greet our guests.

A few were interested in looking for an ancestor in the 1920 or 1930 census.

I think that we were successful in finding something for everyone and more than a few seemed to catch the genealogy bug. It was another successful CGS event.

    Mazel tov and congratulations on the new blog! I lived in San Francisco for close to 20 years but all my family never ventured farther than Chicago it seems.

    I also commend CGS for making all this information available.

    Thanks for your greetings and support. All of this is new to me and to CGS. Please come by the library the next time you are out here for a visit!
