Registration is now open for the 18th annual Nevada County Genealogical Society Seminar on Saturday, August 27, 2011 in Grass Valley, California.
The announcement for Digging for your Roots states that
"There will be two sessions for beginners, consecutively covering topics such as where to start, charts and forms, references, maps, census records, vital records, etc. For those who don’t need the basics, there will be several classes dedicated to Computer and Internet research. We are offering several new presentations including: “Eastern European Research”, “Searching For Your Irish Ancestors”, “Work Those Census”, “Message Boards & Mailing Lists”, “Digging It – Parts I & II”, and in honor of the 150th Anniversary of the Civil War, “Grand Army of the Republic (GAR)”."
Root Cellar past president Marilyn Ulbricht will be presenting “Digging It – Parts I & II”. The classes are about using archeological resources and coroner's records in your family research.
Located about 60 miles from Sacramento, Grass Valley is a destination by itself, being one of the many historic Gold Rush towns in the Sierra foothills. Several Root Cellar members carpool to this well-organized and informative seminar every year.
