Coming in February: A New Special Interest Group – Genealogy Writing

The California Genealogical Society sponsors Special Interest Groups (SIGs) for members to pursue the study of a particular geographical research area or genealogy discipline. These groups are a benefit of society membership. SIGs meet on specific days every month. A new writer's group will be starting in February. SIG meeting days and times are as follows:

  • RootsMagic SIG
    • Meets third Tuesdays, 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. Next meeting January 15, 2013.
  • San Francisco SIG
    • Meets third Saturdays, 10:00 a.m. - 11:30 a.m.  Next meeting January 19, 2013.
  • Writing SIG
    • Will meet second Wednesdays, 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. First meeting February 13, 2013.
The new Genealogy Writing Special Interest Group will provide a venue for members to share their experiences with writing their family history. Each meeting will be facilitated by a member of the group. Discussions will include topics common to family history writing: managing organization, developing content, adding context, and addressing common grammatical questions. There may be guest speakers invited to speak to the group. The Writing SIG will be coordinated by Tim Cox, Lisa Gorrell, and Jane Hufft.

The first meeting will be open to the public. Everyone is invited to attend the inaugural session on Wednesday, February 13, 2013, from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. in the library classroom.
