Genealogical Society Display Asks, ‘Isn’t It Time You Met Your Family?’

While October was Family History Month, it is never too late to discover your roots.

Cari Thomas and Cathy Jordan have put together a beautiful genealogically themed display at the downtown Santa Barbara Central Library, 40 E. Anapamu St.

The inspired work asks the question, “Isn’t it time you met your family?” and then answers, “Let us help you find them at the Sahyun.” (The Sahyun Genealogical Library is a Santa Barbara gem tucked in and almost hidden at the corner of Castillo and Montecito streets).

The presentation is well composed, interesting and informative, and makes a great pitch for the Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society.

The display will be in place until the end of November. Take a few minutes the next time you are downtown to drop in and learn a little bit about what this wonderful, all-volunteer group has to offer.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
