Let's Get Started

Join SCCHGS genealogy consultants for a Genealogy Basics Special Interest Group (SIG). If you are new to genealogy, returning to genealogy or simply want to review the basics, this group is for you.

We will meet on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month. On the 2nd Wednesday of the month, a short presentation on a relevant topic will be followed by a discussion and questions. The meeting on the 4th Wednesday of the month will be a Q&A session where the facilitator will take questions and demonstrate genealogy techniques and tools.
