SAGS UPCOMING MEETINGS:  summer break is over and our first membership meeting for the 2022-23 season will be on October 20, 2022 from 1:00-3:00p.m. We will be meeting in-person at Valley Presbyterian Church in Green Valley -- this meeting will also be available via Zoom for those who prefer to attend remotely. Be sure to check the Events Calendar for meeting details.
 
• SAGS NOVEMBER MEMBERSHIP MEETING:  meeting date has been changed to November 10th (the 2nd Thursday of the month) due to a scheduling conflict. Even though you will receive a reminder email from us about a week prior to the meeting, and that our Events Calendar includes details about the meeting, we suggest you make a note about this date change to your calendar so you won't forget.
 
• 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; learn more about the U.S. Censuses by attending any of the 5 classes being offered in October; 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.
