Palm Springs Genealogical Society Meeting

October 1, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm

The Palm Springs Genealogical Society meets this morning at the Palm Springs Public Library in the Learning Center. Today’s meeting, Two Steps Forward, One Step Back: Is This Genealogy or the Cha-Cha?, features guest speaker Sara Cochran. The discussion will include techniques for finding new clues in records we already have and a look at several small case studies to see the value of taking the time to go backward in order to go forward.

Sara Cochran is a full-time professional genealogist with over 28 years of research experience. Her research has taken her into nearly every US state, as well as Ireland, Italy, Austria and Britain. She especially enjoys breaking down brick walls for her clients and helping individuals preserve their photographic legacy. Sara holds a Boston University Genealogical Research Certificate, a bachelor’s degree in Library Science, and is an alum of the ProGen Study Group. She is a member of multiple lineage societies, the Association of Professional Genealogists, and the Genealogical Speakers Guild. She also volunteers at the National Archives Riverside office.

This program is free.
