Genealogical Society of
P.O. Box 786
Special Interest Groups
Our monthly meetings focus primarily on general genealogical topics and our Special Interest Groups focus on specific areas of genealogical research interest.
We have established Special Interest Groups (SIGs), smaller informal member work groups devoted to a single topic, that meet regularly or as needed. These provide the opportunity to meet and work with other genealogists in a small group setting in person or through other digital means. Currently, SIGs are organized on the following topics listed below. Click on any link to view additional information about that SIG. New groups are welcome, however, with only rare exceptions, members first need to be members of the GSSB. Our special interest groups do not have separate membership dues.
