It is a pleasure to welcome Glenda Gardner Lloyd as a speaker at Family History Day at the California State Archives.

Glenda is a northern California native.  During her career as an elementary skool teacher and to the present time, she has taught beginner and intermediate level genealogy classes through the San Juan Adult Education Center in Citrus Heights, California.  She participates in local seminars for the California State Archives, Sacramento Regional Family History Center, Sacramento Public Library, and does workshops for many local genealogical societies.

Genealogy is her hobby and her passion which she hopes to share with all of you.

Glenda will present two classes:

Beginning Genealogy - The trip of a Lifetime! Genealogy is like walking in the footsteps of time as you trace the migration and interaction of your ancestors.  Learn how to complete pedigree charts and family group sheets to organize your research.  Having the tools and know-how makes your journey into family history more enjoyable and successful.

Census Records - The Backbone of American Genealogy: Census identifies the residence of your ancestors every ten years.  Beginning in 1850, it identifies each person living in the household.  Learn about the different information collected on each census and how it can lead your research to many other records.

Camera-shy Glenda is also well-known for another passion - quilting and knitting.
