Our Society sponsors a variety of Special Interest Groups (SIGs) to support our members who have interests in special genealogical topics. These groups generally meet once a month from September through May (no sessions during the summer).These meetings are interactive allowing opportunities for questions, discussions, and sharing of information.
Current SIGs include:
• Genealogical Records of the States: at each meeting, a different area of the United States is discussed. Bring what your know and/or don't know. There may be some repeats of states depending on the area covered each month.
• Genealogical Resources & Research of the World: each meeting focuses on a different area of the World. Participants should bring any information they may have regarding resources such as databases, websites, etc., from around the world to share with attendees.
• MyHeritage: an opportunity for members to discuss what they know, exchange information, and share tips on using MyHeritage.
• Storytellers – Writing Family Stories: don't let your stories or research get lost in time! Write stories to share with family and future generations.
• Family History Guide Website – Discussion Group: this group was formed, at SAGS members' requests, to further investigate and understand how the FHG streamlines searching Ancestry, FamilySearch, My Heritage and FindMyPast into one interface.
• Mayflower Descendants: for those seeking information about the National and Arizona Mayflower societies and needing help with continuing to find their Mayflower ancestors, submitting applications, and getting answers to their questions.
• FamilyTree Maker: a user's group helping genealogists at all levels on how to best use this software.
