It will work for both the Holiday Party and the Virtual Sundays meeting that follows. No need to move except to refill your beverage.
VIRTUAL SUNDAYS:
SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW

SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 21, 2021
1:00 PM – 2:30 PM
This Sunday learn about accessing non-indexed records with “FamilySearch: The Other 95%” presented by Jill Morelli. Jill is a writer, lecturer, and researcher specializing in the methodology, US Midwest, and Scandinavia. In 2017, she founded the online “Certification Discussion Group,” sharing her journey and demystifying the process of submission of a portfolio to the Board for Certification of Genealogists.  Jill is past president of the Seattle Genealogical Society and co-founder of the Applied Genealogy Institute.
“GIVING TUESDAY” IS NOVEMBER 30TH 
Seattle Genealogical Society is an all-volunteer, 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable organization registered in the state of Washington. Membership dues alone are not adequate to sustain our library and activities. We depend upon the generous support of our members and friends to fulfill our mission. Contributions to SGS are tax deductible.

Like the 2020 tax year, this year people who take the standard deduction instead of itemizing on their income tax return can deduction up to $300 of cash donations to charity. Plus this year the maximum deduction amount has increased for a married couple filing jointly to $600. Checks, credit card, debit card, and Paypal are considered cash contributions.

Please remember Seattle Genealogical Society as you plan your year-end charitable giving. Thank you for your support.
