1:00 PM Reach Out And Touch Someone: International Searches We regularly use libraries and archives close to home, but how do we access such resources in a foreign country? Although the internet has made it easier to reach genealogists on the other side of the world, we still face challenges in knowing what resources are available "over there" and how to communicate with others who do not speak English. Online translators allow us to translate between quite a few languages and English, so that interacting using the rudiments of another language is not as difficult as they used to be. Even if your grammar is not perfect, you will be surprised to find how understanding a phone call or an email recipient can be as you try to communicate with him in his native tongue.

Colleen Fitzpatrick, PhD, is an internationally recognised forensic genealogist, the founder of Identifinders International. She has been involved in high profile forensic cases, As a world traveler and multilingual, Colleen specializes in international cases; she has researched in over 50 countries and has lectured widely in the US, Canada, Europe, Australia, and New Zealand. She has appeared in hundreds of domestic and international newspapers and magazines and on international radio and television programs.

2:00 PM Opera: La Tragedie De Carmen San Diego Opera presents La Tragedie De Carmen (The Tragedy of Carmen). Gypsy Carmen is a sizzling seductress, but play with her and you will get burned. Na´ve young soldier Don Jose falls for her, leaving his homespun sweetheart Micaela in pursuit of a life of crime and lust with Carmen and her band. But when Carmen callously drops him for Escamillo the strutting bullfighter, jealousy ignites and Don Jose is pushed to the brink. Passions intensify and burst into an emotional bonfire that threatens to destroy them all. In Peter Brook's gripping adaptation of Georges Bizet's opera Carmen, The Tragedy of Carmen brings us all of the intense emotion and gorgeous music, in a focused and distilled 90-minute production. Starring Peabody Southwell as Carmen.
