SMCGS Indexing Work Day

Saturday, August 26, 10:30 am – 12:00 pm;
Grace Lutheran Church, 2825 Alameda de las Pulgas, San Mateo         

Continued indexing of San Mateo County records. RSVPs taken in June/July to publications@smcgs.org. Join us for a morning of CUT and PASTE. It is an easy, one-time way to contribute to the growing online genealogical collections. We are close and hope to be finished with the project before the end of the year. The Colma Historical Society has given us fifty years of obituary pages (1906-1959) from the San Francisco Examiner that we are cutting out the San Mateo County obituaries and pasting them on pages that will then be scanned and indexed.

Focused Research - Using Research Plans

Saturday, September 16, 10:30 am – 12:00 pm;
Grace Lutheran Church, 2825 Alameda de las Pulgas, San Mateo 

Do you feel like your research just goes in circles, that you keep finding the same information, or you have brick walls you can't solve? Being focused in your research will bring better results. This can be done by using research plans. I will explain how to create and use a research plan to help keep you on focus in your research and get better results.

For more information please see our Programs page.
