Help us help you by submitting specific questions about your research to info@sdjgs in advance of the meeting.

Colonial Genealogical Records - And How to Find Them
presented by
Hal Horrocks

    As family historians, as we get further back into our ancestor’s lives, it becomes more difficult for us to find the records we need to fill out our family trees. The records for the Colonial period of our history are there, we just have to figure out how to find them. This presentation will explore ways to find the records from 1610 to 1776 that will help us in our search.
    A native Californian and longtime Orange County California resident, Hal Horrocks is a professional genealogist, teacher and lecturer. He has been doing family research for 15 years and is a member of Association of Professional Genealogists (APG), Genealogical Speakers Guild (GSG), Orange County California Genealogical Society (OCCGS), Guild for One-Name Studies, Manchester & Lancashire Family History Society (UK), and Cheshire Family History Society (UK). He has written several articles for publication in the UK. He is also the current President of OCCGS. In addition, he has developed a web site for the Horrocks surname that includes a one-name study, a DNA study, and family trees for Horrocks researchers. Hal has been giving lectures to genealogy societies throughout Southern California for the last 5 years.

10:15: "Civil War POW Camps," presented by Mary Anne Vincent. Part of Mary Anne’s interest in Civil War POW camps stems from her great-great grandfather's brother dying in Andersonville in 1864. He was dead for six months before his family was notified.
    Mary Anne Vincent is a 20-year member of the Delaware Genealogical Society, a 10-year member of the Corona Genealogical Society, and has served on its Board of Directors for seven years. She is also the Secretary for the California State Genealogical Alliance. She taught grades 6-12 for several decades and now is an occasional substitute teacher for the Riverside County Office of Education. She has been working on her family tree since 1971, and has recently completed a book on one line of her father’s side. As part of the research for the book, she has been in touch with literally dozens of second, third, fifth, and seventh cousins, each of whom generously provided family information. The book was published by CreateSpace and can also be found on Amazon.com.
