NEXT MEETING: April 7th- 

Organizing Genealogy by Len Enlow, one of the Founding Members of the Corona Genealogical Society, who held the position of President for five years (2002-2007), also prepares and publishes the Society's monthly newsletter and has done so since its inception. He is also responsible for the scheduling, and teaching much, of the Tuesday afternoon classes sponsored by the Society and the Corona Public Library. Len retired from Boeing (formerly Rockwell International) in January 1999 after 33 years of service; he received his BSEE from Pennsylvania State University and his MSEE from California State University at Long Beach. He is the author of a technical book and holder of two patents.
    Len is an experienced and accomplished speaker in various electronic and genealogical fields; he became interested in family history about 40 years ago when he received memorabilia on his family from a first cousin once removed. From that point on, he was hooked on genealogy and sought every fact, photo, letter, and family history he could get from his family. All of this required some skillful organizing, of course, and he brings lessons learned from his experiences to us in the form of a presentation on how to keep track of all those items of genealogical interest. His handout for this presentation can be downloaded by clicking the link below.
