• SAGS DECEMBER 15 MEMBERSHIP MEETING (attend in-person or via Zoom):  we are rounding out 2022 with one of our favorite genealogy speakers -- D. JOSHUA TAYLOR, a nationally known and recognized genealogist who's passionate about the diverse and dynamic field of family history! You may have seen him as a featured genealogist on Who Do You Think You Are? and as a host on the PBS series Genealogy Roadshow. For complete details, check our Events Calendar now! 
 
TWO NEW ARTICLES ADDED TO "GENEALOGY TODAY" (click HERE). As always, author Becky McCreary's articles are informative, educational, and entertaining. Be sure to read her latest articles on our ancestors' immigration journey to America. Becky (a SAGS member) has been writing the bi-weekly column Genealogy Today in the Green Valley News since 2017.
 
• NEW SEASON OF SIGs & EDUCATIONAL CLASSES: if you're just getting started with genealogy or feel you need to get back to the basics then the Beginner's Genealogy Special Interest Group (SIG) can help; if you use the Family Tree Maker program to build your family tree consider attending their monthly sessions to expand your skill level and to keep up-to-date on what's new; and if you're interested in writing your family stories, attend the Storytellers classes to get your creative juices flowing. Check the Events Calendar for meeting dates & times. To get more details and to sign-up to attend, or to suggest a new class or SIG on a topic that's near and dear to you, send an email to our Education Director, Debra Einweck, at education@azsags.org.
