Public offered tools for genealogical research

ESCONDIDO — The public is invited to join Vincent and Peggy Rossi at the San Diego Archaeological Center and embark on a journey to discovering their family history on Saturday, November 14.

Genealogy is more than names and dates. Exploring one’s family history leads to stories of courage and strength, failure and success, sadness and joy.

This workshop will provide participants with the tools they need to begin their genealogical research. Through this workshop they will learn:

• Where to begin their research

• Skills to analyze what they already know

• How to keep track of what they find

• The value of US census records to find their family

• The role of birth, marriage and death records

• Where to do research both online and in San Diego County

Vincent Nicholas Rossi is a freelance writer whose articles have been published in newspapers and magazines including San Diego News Network, Edibles San Diego and Westways Magazine.

Peggy Rossi has worked as a professional genealogical researcher since 1996.

She is currently newsletter editor for the California State Genealogical Alliance and conducts beginner classes in genealogical research.

This workshop is free for Center members; suggested donation for non-members is $10. Reservations are requested.

For more information on this workshop, contact Annemarie Cox at [email protected] or (760) 291-0370.

San Diego Archaeological Center is located at 16666 San Pasqual Valley Road, one and a half miles east of the San Diego Zoo’s Wild Animal Park.
