Date: Saturday, April 22, 2017, 10:30 AM - 12 Noon
Speaker: Christine Bell Green PLCGS
The meeting will be full of excitement from reading aloud selected stories, to giving everyone who submitted a story a small gift, to the drawing for three $25 cash prizes from all stories submitted, and an extra drawing for three SMCGS tote bags from stories that mention San Mateo County. The meeting wraps up with a Pot Luck lunch for time to discuss our stories with fellow attendees.
Everyone is welcome to attend. If you submitted a story, be sure to come so that you may receive your small thank you gift.
See you there!
The Berryessa family from the de Anza expedition to the twentieth century will be reviewed including military, ranchos, religious and social involvements, family murders in the 1850s, and settling into the American culture by the nineteenth century. Records to be discussed include manuscript collections, church records, newspapers, vital records, and others.
Anthony Ray is a descendant of the Berryessa family and an avid genealogist. He has done extensive research throughout California, Arizona, and in the northern Mexican state of Sonora. In 2011, he was the first student awarded the Suzanne Winsor Freeman Student Genealogy Grant, which helped support his genealogical research.
Join us for cake and other festivities to celebrate 35 years of our society. Please invite any past members to come.
