      Mayflower Descendants SIG Extended Meeting - Breaking Down Brick Walls Together

      Mayflower Descendants SIG  Extended Meeting Breaking Down Brick Walls Together with Robert Trapp  November 16 10 am - 4 pm   The SIG will take place in the CGS classroom (across from the Mayflower offices)   Our November meeting is for those who have received a worksheet from the Mayflower Society. Please bring it, along with your documentation and we will work as a class on research to help each other solve problems. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn and share research tools with other members of the group.  Bob will bring blank worksheet applications for those who have not started their application process to practice with.  Everyone needs to bring a proposed ancestral line with them and the source information for that line.   You are welcome to bring lunch, and take a break in our Sherman Room.   The Mayflower Descendants SIG focuses on Mayflower ancestry and how to join The Society of California Mayflower Descendants.    The group will discuss research in New England, parts of Canada and the upper Atlantic seaboard states.  We will be exploring the materials and books at the Mayflower library and computer research web sites.  Each month will vary as to subject matter followed by a Q&A session.   Robert or “Bob” Trapp is a native of the San Francisco East Bay (his family has been here since the early 1880's).  He is the father of 3 and grandfather of 5.  He is a member of the General Society of Mayflower Descendants, a member of CGS since 1993, and a member of NEHGS since 2000.  He has worked in the Mayflower Library for the past 4 years and is a Staff Coordinator at the Oakland FamilySearch Library where he has volunteered for 28 years.  He has been a seminar presenter for CGS.  He is the Governor of the Alameda Colony of California Mayflower Descendants. There were 102 passengers on the Mayflower. He is a descendant of 26 of them. He loves genealogy and helping others find their roots.   The Mayflower Descendants - SIG is open to all skill levels and meets monthly on Saturdays from 10:00 am  to 12:00 noon.   We are located in the historic Breuner Building at 22nd Street & Broadway, one block north of the Paramount Theater, in Uptown Oakland. We are just three blocks from the 19th Street BART Station.
