New Year & Exciting News!

As announced at our December meeting, The Genealogy Guys -- George G Morgan & Drew Smith -- will be SBCGS's featured speakers for the "HOW-TO Genealogy Seminar: Something for Everyone"!

Individually, George & Drew are both long-time avid genealogists, with solid library backgrounds, active participation in genealogy societies, published authors and popular family history lecturers. But they are also on the cutting edge of genealogical related topics as they host a weekly podcast of Genealogy news, subscribed to by thousands, around the world.

In fact, 'The Genealogy Guys' podcast is the longest running, regularly produced Genealogy podcast in the world.

Fielding questions from the genealogical community requires not only in-depth knowledge of genealogy research topics and comprehensive skills, but also the LATEST information on websites, blogs, published records and resources that have come online.

This all-day Saturday seminar will feature 2 tracks of family history research topics to delight genealogists from beginners (just starting to compile their family data) to seasoned veterans. And it will conclude with a live podcast of that week's The Genealogy Guys show. Attendees will not only be the audience, but will supply the questions for that week's radio show.

Stay tuned and check the SBCGS website www.sbgen.org for more details...but mark your calendars now for Saturday, March 6. You won't want to miss this one!
