OCTOBER MEETING

FINDING THE DOTS........CONNECTING THE DOTS

Speaker:  John Rawlinson

John Rawlinson will take us through the process of his research:  beginning with a limited amount of information and a bare framework of genealogy to presenting a finished history.

A real story of imagining where material might be found, how to search for it, gathering seemingly irrelevant bits (dots) of data.  Creatively and interpretively connecting the relationships between the data and with renewed imagining and additional research achieve a comprehensive and interesting story.

Meetings are held every second Wednesday of each month at 10 a.m. at the Oakland Family History Center Library, 4766 Lincoln Avenue, Oakland, CA.

Guests are always welcome!
