THE BLACK SHEEP IN YOUR FAMILY - Speaker John Shellabear Gleed

It would be an unusual family indeed that had NO Black Sheep. They pique our curiosity and make our family research and stories a little more fascinating, These colorful characters do spice things up.

John Gleed was born in London, England and came to California with his family in
1941. He has been interested in genealogy for thirty years and has been a Patron Server at the Menlo Park Family History Center for the past sixteen years. He defines Black Sheep as a "person who stands out in a negative way". George Bernard Shaw wrote, "If you can't get rid of the Family Skeleton, you may as well make it Dance". John Gleed hopes his presentation will help you make progress in persuading your Black Sheep to Dance!

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