Education, SIGs & Classes
 
A new SIG – Why It Matters to Family History – is being offered in 2024. A series of 8 topics will examine some of the important issues facing family historians as they gain information about their ancestors. Each session will be a set of slides examining the topic, followed by open discussions. Deb Kabinier will be the facilitator for this unique SIG. Details about each session's topic, meeting date and times can be found in the Events Calendar.
 
Our Beginner's Genealogy Group, open to non-members & members, is a great way to get started with researching your family tree. This group meets the 4th Thursday of the month from 3:00pm-4:30pm at the Genealogy Library at La Posada, and via Zoom. Their next meeting is on Thursday, January 25. Contact Jon Otto at jonotto48@yahoo.com for the Zoom link, and check our Events Calendar for future meeting dates.
 
The Family Tree Maker SIG will continue to meet monthly in 2024 for members interested in exploring this software, and if you are just getting started with using FTM they can help. This group meets on Zoom on the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 9:30am. Check the Events Calendar for up-to-date information on meeting dates.
 
Storytellers: Writing Family Stories (Classes)
Don't let your family stories or research get lost in time!
Write stories to share with family and future generations.
This class is for SAGS members who enjoy writing the stories of their ancestors to share with family members and to pass to future generations. It is not a research, grammar, or punctuation class. There are assignments, in-class writing prompts, and time to share stories. We use pen/pencil and paper – no electronic writing devices. The class is limited to 15 and there is a reasonable commitment to attend each class, as others depend on your participation.This is not a drop-in SIG; you must register in advance to join the class. If you are interested, please contact Becky McCreary:  rebeccamccreary764@gmail.com
 
To get more details about our SIGs, 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.
