Genealogical Society of Santa Cruz County Lecture Series: Digging in the Archives
Digging in the Archives, Lisa Robinson, speaker
Tuesday, September 7th
Local archives can be a source of valuable information for genealogists wanting to tell a rich history of their ancestors. They often contain diaries, scrapbooks, hotel registers, club and organization minutes, etc.
Lisa Robinson will take us through a journey exploring the archives in the collection of the San Lorenzo Valley Museum to demonstrate how such a collection can be used to paint a more vivid picture of our ancestors, from wherever they may have hailed.
