THE LOS ANGELES CIVIL WAR ROUND TABLE CORDIALLY INVITES YOU TO OUR NEXT MEETING, ON TUESDAY, May 15, AT 7:00 PM

OUR PROGRAM: "Researching Your Civil War Ancestors"

Interested in genealogy? Want to know much more about your family, including those Civil War soldiers that are part of your DNA? This hands-on talk will be held at the Los Angeles FamilySearch Library so you can learn the tools like “familysearch.org” and “ancestry.com,” and how to find records for your ancestors. The talk will walk you through sample cases, to find out more about the soldiers in the family trees of three of our very own CWRT members. Once you learn the tools, then you’ll have time to do research on your own family. Warning: this may become addicting!

MEET OUR SPEAKER:

Dr. Dave Schrader has been giving CWRT talks to Los Angeles audiences since 2013. He is particularly fascinated by “the rest of the story” – for example, the activities of support organizations such as the Signal Corps, the Quartermaster, and Commissary Corps, who often played major but behind-the-scene roles in the abilities of generals and presidents to achieve their goals. He is currently working on his own family's genealogy. Most of his talks are interactive so be prepared for audience participation!

NOTE: DIFFERENT LOCATION FROM USUAL. We will meet in the lower level conference room of the Los Angeles FamilySearch Library, located in the Visitors Center, behind the Los Angeles Mormon Temple (LDS Church) at 1631 East Temple Way, Los Angeles, California 90024. Plenty of free parking. Click Here for Directions

Come to our meeting and learn the answers to these questions, and more, as this fascinating story unfolds.

The Los Angeles Civil War Round Table was founded in 1977. Over the years, interest waned, but the Round Table was revived in the 1990’s, and it has had a sustained membership, of about 30, for the last several years. We are a very welcoming group, and our meetings are open to the public, free of charge. You need not be a Civil War expert, just someone who is interested in our Nation’s history.

COME JOIN US, AND BE ENLIGHTENED AND ENTERTAINED ABOUT A WIDE VARIETY OF TOPICS REALTED TO THE CIVIL WAR ERA.
