Welcome to the Temecula Valley Historical Society!

The Society's Monthly Program

Our next program will be on September 25th at 6:00 p.m.

Laurice Johnson, an avid genealogist and active member of the Temecula Valley Genealogical Society, is giving a two-part presentation to the Temecula Valley Historical Society on August 28 and September 25 at the Little Temecula History Center. Johnson will give details on how to "Get Ready to Get Started" for people interested in starting to trace their family trees. She will discuss resources available in the free Familysearch.org website, how to use WIKI, and the pros and cons of using the World Tree. At the end of the August program Laurice will guide the audience in an activity with the ap Relative Finder to see if anyone in the audience may be related to one another.  


Laurice grew up in a family that discussed their ancestors around the dinner table and she heard a lot of stories about her predecessors. As an adult she was shocked to learn her husband's knowledge was limited to what his grandmother’s name was. That was thirty years ago and Laurice has been actively researching since then.

Any questions regarding our presentations may be addressed to Rebecca Farnbach at:


Our programs are held indoors at the Little Temecula History Center, which is the "red barn" next to Kohl's, one block south of the intersection of Temecula Parkway and Margarita Road.

The programs are free and open to the public.
