The Geography of American Genealogy with Glen Holstein, PhD
Thursday, February 9
The Geography of American Genealogy with Glen Holstein, PhD  (General Meetings)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints AND via Zoom
Many of our ancestors were part of groups that left homelands at particular times and moved together to specific regions in America. For example, many people left Ireland during a blight that destroyed their potato crop and then moved to American places where they could make a living without growing potatoes. About the same time, political upheavals caused many Germans to settle in quite different American regions. Such migrations are just two of many that will be discussed. Together, they are the geography of genealogy. Your ancestors are part of this geography.

Wicked Sacramento with speaker William Burg
Thursday, March 9
Wicked Sacramento with speaker William Burg  (General Meetings)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints AND via Zoom.
COME MEET THE AUTHOR!
Wicked Sacramentothe latest book by historian William Burg, is a crime story. In the first half of the 20th century, Sacramento's civic leaders went to enormous lengths to eliminate wickedness from its waterfront neighborhood, known as "the lower part of town," "the tenderloin," and later "the West End." This neighborhood included buildings dating back to the Gold Rush and a diverse, multiracial population. A social movement called the Progressives lead this effort, but concealed within their social reform agenda was a crime of its own: racism. 
 
Burg's presentation will focus on three individuals, all well-known in Sacramento during their lifetimes, who coincidentially share the author's home state of Illinois: Cherry de Saint Maurice, Grant Cross, and Ancil Hoffman.
 
Wicked Sacramento includes stories of these three Sacramentans, and many others, from the early 1900s through the 1950s. Their lives intersected with the West End, a Sacramento neighborhood that no longer exists after repeated campaigns demanding its removal.
