Summer Seminar Series - Aug. 3

Finding old family photos is like opening a treasure chest of the past. Often, however, they need a little TLC (tender loving care) before they can be used on your website, in your tree, or in a story. Join us online Tuesday, August 3, at 7:00 p.m. to hear Sandra Crowley present "Restoring and Editing Family Photos." Learn how to bring those digital images to life while retaining the charm and vintage appeal of your family history.

Genealogy Help Sessions

With vaccinations now in full swing and library re-openings, we're now able to offer Genealogy Help Sessions  again!
 
Lisa Mahler is hosting help sessions on the 3rd and 4th Tuesdays of each month, from 6:45 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Meet her on the 2nd Floor of the Stephens Central Library (downtown) near the Genalogy Center sign. Bring your questions!  

Ongoing

The 3rd Monday Lunch is on hiatus for the summer and will resume again in September. The cancellation of Research Assistance & More  on Wednesdays continues, but with the re-opening of the WTC we hope to start up again very soon. By September, the SAGHS Board of Directors will re-evaluate meeting in person based on the status of the pandemic and the availability of our usual meeting space. We will keep you posted!
 
To help us all stay connected, while remaining safe at home, SAGHS will host an online presentation the first Tuesday of each month through August 2021! Hopefully we can all get together again, in person, for a celebratory meeting. Check back here, or more information.
 
We encourage all of our members and friends to be careful and follow the guidelines provided by our healthcare professionals. We care about you, and hope to see you in the future, when we are able to meet again in person. In the meantime, keep up with SAGHS news on our Facebook page and this website.
