July 2011 Newsletter: The Sacramento Regional Family History Center

I just received the July 2011 newsletter from the Sacramento Regional Family History Center (SRFHC).  How convenient that it comes directly to my inbox.

Below are selected items from the current newsletter.  The newsletter also has Family History Tips, Favorite Websites and a newsletter Subscribe option.  Kudos to Linda Todd and Linda Lucky for this wonderful service to the genealogical community - I recommend readers go to SRFHC website for more information and subscribe.
