Root Cellar Membership Meeting
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Christ Community Church, 5025 Manzanita Avenue, Carmichael
6:15 to 7:00 PM 6:15 Pre-meeting open discussion – Each table will be dedicated to several U.S. states. Share tips, information, problems and solutions with people researching in the same region.
7:00 to 8:30 PM “Practical Tips for Planning an On-Site Research Trip” Presented by Pam Brett.
Pam Brett has been interested in genealogy for nearly forty years since she began filling in the
family tree of her first-born child's baby book. Raising two daughters and working as a public health social worker left little free time until 1999 when she began her family research in earnest.
Brett's ancestors were mobile which led to research in thirty-one states and the District of Columbia. She loves doing on-site research in the States "where there are many challenges but the rewards are priceless."
