See You at Sunday's Genealogy Meeting
"Family Treasures from the Attic"
Sunday, February 11, 10 a.m.
Jewish Genealogical Society of Sacramento
It's one of the most popular meetings of the Sacramento Jewish Genealogical Society, the annual "show-and-tell" by members who bring in precious family memorabilia.
It's a chance to hear the stories behind items that have been passed down through the generations, or perhaps learn about newer treasures that may become the family heirlooms of the future.
Whether you're a longtime member, a new one, or someone who may be interested in learning more about your family tree, feel free to join us for this special meeting.
All are welcome to attend on Sunday morning, February 11 at the Albert Einstein Residence Center 1935 Wright Street (off Wyda Way), Sacramento. See you Sunday!

We were contacted by Barbara Israel in Tempe, AZ, azisrael@...
who is looking for an Albert M. Fisher, Jr. " The Albert M. Fisher, Jr. I am looking for, I have this data on him: In 1957 Albert lived in Corning, CA. He was a backer in a dubdivision in that town. Villa Del Rey was located on Colusa and Houghton streets. His partners were Ray Lachenmyer and E.V. Murdick. I believe Albert had two sons, Paul and Gregory. "
Several suggestions were sent to Barbara re checking Web site phone listings such as www.anywho.com and vital records such as death certificates but she would welcome any other thoughts.

A new weekly hour-long Internet radio show, "Family Roots Radio," began airing today and will continue at 1 p.m. Thursdays as well as several repeat airings.
The show will feature a wide range of "how-to" elements designed to assist all people interested in family history, from the novice to the professional. In addition to answering general questions from listeners, spotlighting important family history news and providing research tips from professionals, the show will include guests from among the most prominent genealogists today. The show will also explore effective ways to use software and the Internet in the pursuit of family history, including spotlighting data-rich websites. In addition, an "interactive" feature will walk listeners through the use of important sites, while they are listening to the broadcast.
The guest for the first episode was John Philip Colleta, probably best known for his work with immigration issues, including his popular book, They Came in Ships.
For more details, and instructions for how to listen (NO special software required) with your Internet browser, visit http://www.familyrootsradio.com/
Each show will air three other times during the week. The schedule is also available at the site mentioned above.
