Liz Shaw, Publicity representative and Facebook administrator for the Sacramento German Genealogy Society (SGGS), wishes to extend an invitation to all IGS members to attend their upcoming seminar. The seminar will be held at Fair Oaks Presbyterian Church, and features Michael Lacopo, DVM a veternarian who retired in 2013 to become a professional genealogy researcher and has 30+ years experience in genealogical research. He will present two lectures on “Using DNA to Further Your Family Tree” and two lectures on “Overcoming Brick Walls in German-American Research.” He is a knowledgable and engaging speaker. SGGS members have enjoyed his quick wit and willingness to answer their questions. His science training makes him especially qualified to discuss and explain DNA testing and its use in genealogy research.
Brochures for this event will be available at the IGS researcher “Stammtisch” we’re holding this coming Sunday, beginning at 1 pm. Or, just visit the SGGS website and click on “Spring Seminar.” Here you’ll find cost and optional lunch details, and a map to the location. Registration is by PayPal or mail-in form (but registration should be received by April 1st to avoid late registration pricing). And, be aware that space is limited, and that registration may close if the event is as popular as in past years!! Special questions or concerns? Just email Liz or call her at 916.337.1830.
