Donna Dugle Young started researching her family history shortly after moving to Grass Valley from Los Gatos in 1996 and has been very active in the genealogy community ever since giving presentations at genealogy societies and seminars. She is currently Education Chairman of the Nevada County Genealogical Society and is leader of their monthly study group. She is also a member of the Placer County Genealogical Society and the Genealogical & Historical Council of Sacramento Valley. Donna was the leader of the Grass Roots Genealogy Group for six and a half years. Both Donna and Ron (her husband) are volunteer librarians at the Family History Center in Nevada City. They have made numerous research trips to Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, Vermont, West Virginia, North Carolina and most recently Ireland tracking down information on their ancestors.
Donna Dugle Young will be presenting Beginning Genealogy I and II. These classes are both an introduction for beginners and a refresher course for those who have been doing genealogy research for awhile. The presentation starts with the basics of how to write names and dates then continues to explain the reasons for the different charts and gives suggestions on how to organize your finds. In Beginning Genealogy II the emphasis is on where to find the information and documents that will enhance your family history including vital records, census and internet resources.
