  Barbara Hunter gave us a short report on her trip to the National Genealogical Society Conference in Sacramento, but now we will get the full report. She will talk about California Research including the California State Library and State of California Archives. She also will report on the National Genealogical Society Conference, which included Western migration and cultures, lands and maps.  
   This will be a very interesting program by Barbara, not only can you learn about the NGS, but researching in California.
