Family Research and The Civil War
presented by
John Finch

The Civil War (18611865) is, arguably, the most significant single event in our nations history. John will describe the range and scope of this struggle and its impact on the populace. If at that time your ancestors were living within the then defined boundaries of the United States, the Commonwealth of Virginia to the Arizona Territory, their lives were altered by this conflict.
John has been a member of the Chula Vista Genealogical Society since 1999 and has served as Library Coordinator, Program Chair and President (2004-2006 term). He is also a member of the Lee County Illinois Historical and Genealogical Society. He retired from U.S. Navy in 1980 and the San Diego County Probation Department in 1999.
He developed an interest in his own family history at a very young age, but did not begin an active pursuit of research until after retiring in 1999. Now he spends several hours each week researching his family and volunteers at the Chula Vista Central Library on Wednesday mornings to assist new and seasoned researchers.
