SOCIETY OF MAYFLOWER DESCENDANTS LIBRARY
Speaker: Myrtle Savage
Myrtle Savage, an experienced researcher for the Mayflower Society, will give us an overview of what we might find on the library's shelves. Your ancestors may not have been on the Mayflower, but if they were early immigrants in New England and the colonies, they may very well be found among the collection at the Mayflower Library. The library has reference volumes you will not find anywhere else in the greater Bay Area.
Born in rural Minnesota, Myrtle is a graduate of The Swedish School of Nursing and the University of Minnesota. She remembers as a child writing notes as her grandmother talked about the early times and family members. Her father knew his genealogy, but in the 1980s Myrtle set out to document his work. She has been actively pursuing genealogy ever since and a researcher at the Mayflower Society Library for over 13 years.
Meetings are held at the Oakland Family History Center, 4766 Lincoln Avenue, Oakland, CA.
Guests are always welcome!
