Senior Focus

FAMILY HISTORY ... Just because Great Aunt Mable said your ancestor was from Scotland doesn't mean she was. Genealogist Joshua Taylor will present a day's worth of instruction on tracking your family's roots Saturday, May 4, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in seminars sponsored by the San Mateo County Genealogical Society. Taylor will cover "essential technology" for genealogists, how to use probate, land, census, tax and other records to find ancestors who lived between 1780 and 1830, how to uncover the truth behind family legends and time-saving techniques for genealogists. The event will be at the Menlo Park Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 1105 Valparaiso Ave., Menlo Park. Preregistration is $42 and registration at the door is $48. Lunch is an additional $8. For more information and preregistration, go to the San Mateo County Genealogical Society's website at www.smcgs.org.
