The first meeting of the year always includes voting for the Board of Directors for the current year. Please come vote. And if you are interested in volunteering for an open position, speak up before the meeting so we can get you on the slate!

When voting is complete, Shelley will take the floor and talk about migration routes in the early USA.

The first period of American immigration was between 1625 and 1764, which was east of the Appalachian Mountains, and contained in the original thirteen colonies. All roads were near the seaports and only connected towns after 1700. Northern This migration was mainly on foot or horse.

The next period of immigration was from 1765 to 1815. The trails were extended through the mountains and widen for wagon roads into the Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee and Cumberland river valleys.

Come learn about the travel routes used by our ancestors.

Doors open at 6:15 pm, the meeting starts at 7:00 pm. We’ll see you at the Family History Center, 1024 Noche Buena, Seaside, CA., left rear of building.
