The April Ancient City Bulletin has been posted to the SAGS Support Library. This month’s theme is networking and you’ll find several interesting networks focused on genealogy and family history. They are:

  1. Editorial Notes: Going Social

  2. Research Toolbox: MeWe Social Network

  3. In the Archives: WeRelate

  4. Storytellers Studio: Famicity

The April member meeting is this Saturday, April 21st. Check-in begins at 12:45pm and the meeting begins at 1:00pm. This month’s speaker is Michael Ports. His presentation is titled Robert Franklin Thomas (1834-1922): A Case Study in Climbing Over Southern Brick Walls.


The Celtic Connections Conference is scheduled for August 10-11, 2018 in Boston. If you are interested, visit for details and registration.


Short courses return! This month’s topic is the research plan. A research plan helps develop a strategy for finding the information you need and keeps you focused on the task at hand. Join us to learn how a research plan can help you.

Graphic - Family History Faire

Since October is Family History Month, it is the perfect time for our Family History Faire. The Faire is an opportunity to put your family’s history on display. Visit the Photos page at the society’s Facebook page to see some of the projects displayed at our last Faire. We’ll also be posting project ideas and resources here at Research Notes.


This week’s project idea comes from Storytellers Studio. Creative Powerpoint demonstrates how Powerpoint (and Keynote, WordPerfect Presentations or LibreOffice’s Impress) becomes an impressive scrapbooking platform. Stop by the Studio and see for yourself.
