VENTURA COUNTY GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY Free Family History Presentation
June 15 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
THE VENTURA COUNTY GENEALOGICAL SOCIETY presents a
Free Family History Presentation
Saturday, June 15, 2019, at the
Camarillo Library Community Room 4101 Las Posas Road, Camarillo, CA 93010
1:00 P.M. “Deception, Divorce, Desertion, and DNA; Finding a Grandfather for Dave”
Presented by Cheryl Storton, CG
This presentation will explore a case study which begins with a flawed birth certificate. The researcher is then taken on a merry chase through eight states and a multitude of diverse records – many involving chicanery and artifice. The presentation then will look at DNA as a tool to search out a biological grandfather.
Cheryl Storton has been researching her family since the 1980s. For over twenty years she served the San Luis Obispo County Genealogical Society as President, Seminar Chair, and Program Chair. She became a certified genealogist in 2016 after submitting an extensive portfolio. Cheryl now teaches genealogy classes in Arroyo Grande. Her main goal is linking the generations with proof statements, summaries, or detailed proof arguments. She is also attempting to clean out her huge collection of pictures and documents. Wish her luck!
2:30 P.M. WORKSHOP: “EXPLORING CAMARILLO LIBRARY DIGITAL RESOURCES”
Presented by Kay Engel Kay will provide information on what digital resources are available at the Camarillo Library for genealogical research, and how to use them.
