The next meeting of the Milpitas Historical Society, will be a presentation on researching genealogy, given by Trina Gentry. Ms Gentry serves as Second Vice President and Editor of Connections, a publication of Santa Clara County history and genealogies for the Santa Clara County Historical and Genealogical Society.
Her presentation will cover how to work on your family tree and what the society offers for help to family historians and researchers through the vast local and international collection housed in the Santa Clara Central Library on Homestead Road.
The library and the society have combined collections including not only Santa Clara County and California records, but also genealogical information from a variety of other places in the United States, including New England and the southern states as well as family information about ethnic groups such as Italian, Jewish, Native American, Canadian, and many others.
