Temecula Valley Genealogy Society Open House 

Monday October 8, 2018  6:30 pm

Temecula City Hall

October is always a special time for TVGS because it’s our annual Open House and this year proves to be just as great as previous years. Yes, there will be exhibits and yes, there will be door prizes. And of course, there will be food and networking. But this year is extra special because we celebrate our 20th anniversary. Compared to some societies, we are in our infancy but in those 20 years we’ve accomplished a lot and the future is just as bright as we look ahead to new ideas, fantastic programs, and other offerings for our members. I hope you’ll take some time to check out everything the Open House has to offer. And don’t forget your wallet because our annual book sale will also be there and we have a lot of books especially if you’re doing Canadian research or need to build a genealogy reference library. I’m excited by our prizes and I know you’ll want to win one. Prizes include DNA kits, a signed book from Lisa Louise Cook, a military research collection, Amazon gift card, and more
