Program: City Directories, A Problem-Solving Approach
Presenter: Glenda LloydArea genealogist Glenda Lloyd will speak about the value of city directories, published local listings that date from the early 1800s. City directories offer genealogists a great resource in finding relatives years before the telephone book, and a way to locate them between censuses. Glenda Gardner Lloyd is a fourth-generation Californian who grew up on a cattle ranch in northeastern California and attended a one-room school. After a lengthy career as an elementary school teacher, Glenda helped found Root Cellar Sacramento Genealogical Society, and served as its first president. She taught genealogy classes through the San Juan Adult Education for the past 25 years. All are welcome to attend the meeting at the Albert Einstein Residence Center, 1935 Wright Street, Sacramento.
