Welcome to the Whittier Area Genealogical Society
A genealogical society serving the Whittier area
in Los Angeles County, California
Our next monthly program will be on Saturday, March 21st, 2020

Morning Class - Christine Cohen
11:00 am to 12:0 pm, Saturday, March 21, 2020 
Read the Instructions
A census record can give a "snapshot" of a family on a particular day.  However, when you search in the Federal, State, Veterans, Agricultural and Mortality Censuses, do you take the time to read the column headings, the instructions given to the enumerator on what to enter on the form or the abbreviation codes?  We will review these important items - directions that can assist your understanding of the answers provided.  These forms can provide clues to birth, citizenship, military service, death, social status, and much more.
Lunch Break
12:00 pm to 1:00 pm, Saturday, March 21, 2020
The lunch break is a great opportunity to network with fellow genealogists!
Pat Stubblefield and the Hospitality Committee, as always, are planning a homemade lunch that will feature an entree, salad, dessert and a beverage, all for only a $5 suggested donation.
Contact our Hospitality Chair, Miriam Benell at dandmbenell@earthlink.net to make a lunch reservation by Wednesday, March 18th so we know how many to plan for.
General Meeting and Speakers - Mark Cross
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm, Saturday, March 21, 2020 
Cite Your Sources:  Ways to Communitcate Your Research to the World and Prove You're Trustworthy
If you don't know what a source citation is, are fearful of doing it wrong, or intimidated by what experts say it should be, this class will cover the necessities and more. A citation should not strike fear in the hearts of researchers. Instead, it should be something we all practice in our daily research. Become familiar with simple practices that we can all easily learn, and why we do it.
