Our next meeting

Class (1:00 pm)
Bernard Zakheim, Artistic Genius and Great California Polish Painter, Part I
Presented by: Robert S. Sherins, MD, PGSCA Past President 2009-2013

Genealogists use social sciences and technological research to investigate family histories. This involves finding useful means to uncover lost documents, photographs, and vital records. It also includes taking meaningful oral histories and uncovering relevant geopolitical history and maps. PGSCA fellow member and immediate past president, Dr. Robert Sherins, will deliver 2 presentations on the subject of Bernard Zakheim's artistic genius, a former Polish immigrant of California. Robert will emphasize his use of the genealogical technologies that guided his research to produce an historical manuscript about California history, as well as enabling the preservation of the fascinating Zakheim family history, which has been documented since the early 17th century (1659) in the Commonwealth of Poland-Lithuania.

Meeting (2:30 pm)
"Bernard Zakheim, Artistic Genius and Great California Polish Painter, Part II"
Presented by: Robert S. Sherins, MD, PGSCA Past President 2009-2013
