FALL MEMBERSHIP MEETING
The SGS Fall Membership Meeting has been scheduled for Saturday, October 10, 2015 at 1:00 pm at the SGS Library.
At this meeting, Julia Marconi, Director of Membership, will be presenting the program “The Use of Social Media in Genealogy”. She will help us understand some of the ways that the various social media sites can assist in your search for those elusive ancestors, and how you may possibly find cousins that you didn’t know existed. SGS is going to focus on enhancing our social media presence. Learn how you could benefit from the use of research tools that you may not have yet explored.
Also at this meeting the Financial Review Committee will be presenting their report to the membership on their review of the finances of the society.
Each year, the Washington State Genealogical Society presents a number of special citations, in recognition and appreciation of the dedication and commitment exhibited to the genealogical community in Washington State. This year SGS is pleased to have our outstanding Library Team recognized. The team was selected for its dedicated volunteer efforts to enlarge and improve the society’s library. Team members are Dona Bubelis, Daniel P. Harmon, Kathi McGinnes, Charlotte Wixon and Ann Wright.
This will be an interesting meeting, please put the date on your calendar and plan to join us on the 10th of October at SGS.
