Tomorrow morning, fellow geneablogger Stephen J. Danko of Steve’s Genealogy Blog, will be the special guest speaker at the meeting of the Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society (of which I am a member).

When: Saturday, October 17, 2009
Time: 9:30 AM – 12:00 PM
Where: First Presbyterian Church, Santa Barbara

Steve’s program looks like this:

9:30 – 10:15 AM – “Genealogy and the Changing Map of Eastern Europe”
11:00 AM – 12:00 PM – “A New Look at Immigrant Passenger Manifests”

Barring any unforseen family crisis, my plan is to be there tomorrow for Steve’s talks. My husband’s maternal great-grandparents immigrated to the U.S. from Czechoslovakia, and unfortunately I know very little about this area of research – let alone, part of the world. I can certainly use the information.

Also, as a charter member of the “Steve Danko Fan Club,” I feel it my duty to be there to represent. I’m hoping Steve will give me some special tutoring. Or at least an autograph.

Seriously though, this promises to be an excellent program, and one that I’m looking forward to hearing. For more information about this event, as well as their other Family History Month programs, please visit the Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society.
