August Virtual Meeting

Is your genealogy threatening to take over your desk? Join us Tuesday, August 4 at 7:00 p.m. to learn tips for organzing your genealogy.

Organizing Your Genealogy While Downsizing and Planning for Your Retirement” presented by Devon Lee.
Are you drowning in so much research that you’re wasting time and not climbing your family tree? Are you concerned that no one will want your research when you’re finished with it? Learn how to organize your research with an eye toward efficiency and preserving for the future.
You will be able to download the handout when you log onto the meeting. 
 
You must register for the Webinar before the meeting on Tuesday, August 4! Instructions on how to connect using your computer (Windows or Mac)/tablet/cell phone are provided below:
 
We strongly encourage you to take advantage of the “Get Ready” page GoToWebinar has on their Web site before Tuesday! This will allow you to download any required software and provide you with an opportunity to make sure your speakers/headphones are working properly.
Note you have two audio options: Using your Computer or Using a Telephone. In either case using a headset/earbuds produces the best results.
•    Use the Computer option if your device has speakers or headphones.
•    Alternatively, use the Telephone option with your cell phone using one of the telephone numbers provided in the confirmation emails. It is important that you mute your cell phone during the meeting as background sounds will interfere with the presentation.

SAGHS has no control over how loud the presentation is. If you can't hear the presentation because the sound is too low, turn up the audio on your computer.

Ongoing

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, SAGHS has continued with the  cancellation of the 3rd Monday Lunch and all meetings of Research Assistance & More  on Wednesdays, until further notice. On a future date, the SAGHS Board of Directors will re-evaluate the safety of meeting in person based on the status of the pandemic and post event dates. 
 
To help us all stay connected, while remaining safe at home, SAGHS will host an online presentation the first Tuesday of each month through out the summer! Hopefully by September we can all meet together again, in person, for the first fall meeting. We will keep you posted!
 
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.

As promised, SAGHS now has several video presentions from past meetings behind the "Member Wall". Simply log-in under "Members Only" and choose the menu option "Video Presentation". Click on the one you wish to view (it is best to view in "full screen" - little box in right corner).
