FamilySearch Tree, Ancestry, and WikiTree:
Some New Features And A Few Old Ones
Three of the “best known and most used” online tree depositories
FamilySearch Tree, Ancestry, and WikiTree, have made some major changes during the past year. From their opening page to using search pages they are constantly adding features to make research easier and more intuitive for both the beginning and the seasoned researcher. We’ll cover a number of features that will get you where you want to go faster so you can spend optimal time with your genealogical research.
This will be a hands-on session in the computer lab at the FamilySearch Library,
so come early to get the best seats!

Solutions to “Hitting the Brick Wall”
Each year, the PGS-CA Membership gathers to share their expertise in assisting their fellow PGS-CA Members with their “Brick Walls.”
Every PGS-CA member has experienced a brick wall some time in their research, and while a solution may not be provided, more often than not, someone has experienced a similar problem and may have a good suggestion for further research. While you may have brought your Brick Wall to the group in the past, we always have new members or members who have not attended in the in the past. Bring what you have already done and the group may have a new option for you to try!

Celebrating our Polish Heritage
2nd Annual Polish Potluck and
PGS-CA 2nd Annual Polish Heritage Pot Luck!
Since 1981, October has been designated as Polish American Heritage Month.
What better way to celebrate our Polish Heritage with a potluck lunch at our September meeting?
On September 23, 2017, the Polish Genealogical Society of California will celebrate our Polish Heritage with a meeting designed around our Polish Heritage. The focus of the September meeting will be “Our Polish Treasures.”
We are asking that PGS-CA members bring one of their Polish Treasures to talk about at the meeting, while we all savor a delicious potluck lunch of Polish goodies. A Polish Treasure can be a memory of a person from our past, an artifact of great importance, a story about our research, anything that has some personal significance in our Polish ancestral research.
We’ll be meeting in the same place, the LA Family History Center, at the same time, 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm.
