The Santa Barbara County Genealogical Society will hold its monthly general meeting from 9:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, July 19 at First Presbyterian Church, 21 E. Constance St. in Santa Barbara.

This month’s featured speaker, Nancy Loe, will help you learn about your ancestors’ experiences as they moved from entries on a ship’s manifest to an inspector’s record book.

Discover what life was like for new immigrants, what records survive, and what you will find if you visit Castle Garden and Ellis Island today.

Loe is a professional archivist and librarian with an active interest in genealogy. She has a master's degree in American history and a master's degree in library science, and has managed local history, genealogy and special collections in public and academic libraries.

She has served as a consultant on institutional archives and digital asset management. In addition to appearing on PBS' American Experience and California Gold, Loe has presented extensively on genealogy research in Arizona, Georgia, Illinois, Colorado and California.

She has assisted hundreds of people in libraries and archives with their family research and is working on her own family tree in the United States, Norway, Sweden, Scotland, Austria, Prussia and Germany. Her blog, Sassy Jane Genealogy, can be found by clicking here.

Special interest groups will meet July 19 at 9:30 a.m. for Beginning Genealogy, Writers' Support Group, German Ancestry, Italian Genealogy, Computer Genealogy, DNA and Jewish Genealogy. The society's monthly meeting will start at 10:30 a.m., followed by the featured speaker at 11 a.m.

Come join us. You do not need to be a member to enjoy this wonderful free presentation.

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!
