Research Notes 2020-6-22

We have a nice little treat for our members this week . . . a presentation! Actually, this is a test run to see how we can provide online presentations for our members while this virus keeps us from having society meetings. This week’s presentation is Affordable Research and it introduces you to an impressive number of free resources available to help your research efforts.

While you can watch the presentation here at SAGS Support using your desktop computer, you may have sound problems unless you have a headset or speakers. If you have a mobile device, you should not have any sound problems.

Another option is to view it on Tumblr using a mobile device. You will have better sound on a mobile device than on a desktop. It’s also available on the Members Network group on


The link to the presentation on Tumblr is Even if you have a problem with the video, there’s also an impressive collection of affordable research resources in this blog.

Since this is an experiment, if you have any problems drop me a note at Any feedback would be appreciated.


There are a number of new and impressive genealogy groups now on the MeWe social network. Laverne Tornow recently opened the All About Family History group for people new to genealogy. Lee Thayer’s Genealogy People Photos is a delight and his Genealogy & Family Research already has 370 members. The Genealogy Research Resources group now has 37 members and Genealogy One has 1248. The Genealogy Researcher’s Digital Toolbox is under construction but should be online by the end of the week.
