What’s New at SIGS - April 2024

Welcome, genealogy enthusiasts. As we begin April, there are exciting opportunities and updates to share within the Sno-Isle Genealogical Society (SIGS) community. Let's dive right in:

  1. Call for Officer Nominations: We're currently accepting nominations for Officers for the upcoming year beginning July 1st. This is a fantastic opportunity to help shape the direction of our organization and deepen your interaction with fellow members. Details about the roles and responsibilities are available in the Beacon, at the April 3rd meeting, or via email at askus@snoislegenealogy.org. Don't miss your chance to make a meaningful contribution to SIGS!

  2. Growing Community: Our vibrant community continues to flourish, with April kicking off with 47 active members. It's also a busy month for renewals, so keep an eye out for a reminder message from membership@snoislegenealogy.org. Your continued support and engagement are the lifeblood of our society, and we're grateful for each and every one of you.

  3. Be the Great Ancestor Future Genealogists Need - April 3rd General Meeting: Join us on April 3rd for an enlightening presentation titled "Be the Great Ancestor Future Genealogists Need." Corey Smith urges you to take simple steps to preserve vital information for future generations. He will provide insights into the types of information worth capturing and methods for collecting it.  The in-person meeting begins with a social gathering at 6:30 pm, followed by the main presentation at 7:00 pm, both available for in-person and online attendance. Check the calendar for further details and make plans to join us for this enlightening discussion.

  4. Tool Shed Online Meeting - April 17th: The Tool Shed continues to be a valuable resource for genealogists seeking to enhance their research skills. This month, we'll be meeting online on April 17th. Join us as we delve into the art of "Searching, Sorting, and Filtering" to maximize the efficiency of your research across different repositories. Don't miss this opportunity to sharpen your genealogical toolkit and connect with fellow enthusiasts.

  5. Brick Wall Sessions - April 20th: Our Brick Wall sessions return on April 20th. Sign up for one of the 40-minute session to receive personalized guidance and support in breaking down those research obstacles. Check the calendar for how to sign-up.

  6. Coffee Klatch Every Monday: Start your week off right with our weekly Coffee Klatch, held every Monday at 10 am on Zoom. Grab your favorite beverage and join us for a casual and enriching conversation with fellow genealogy enthusiasts. It's the perfect way to kickstart your genealogical week and connect with like-minded individuals.

Let's make April a month of growth, connection, and empowerment within our genealogical community. Join us in shaping the future of SIGS and continuing our collective journey of discovery and learning.
