It looks like I won't be seeing fall in New England this year, but I'm excited to get a bit of New England genealogy this Friday at the California Genealogical Society Seminar in Oakland when the New England Historic and Genealogical Society Comes West.
Genealogists David Allen Lambert and Rhonda McClure will be presenting an all-day seminar followed by dinner and presentations with NEHGS President Brenton Simons. The sessions sound great -- it's going to be hard to choose which ones to attend -- and I'll have a chance to catch up with GeneaBloggers who will be attending.
The event is Friday, October 26, 2012 8:30 am to 4:00 pm at His Lordships, Berkeley Marina, 199 Seawall Drive, Berkeley, CA.
