2019 Third Annual GSSB Yearbook

The GSSB has published the third annual issue of the "GSSB Yearbook: A Look Back" to document the work of the Society over the last year. 2019 was an active year and this publication will demonstrate much of what happened and the efforts and news related to the work we untook to promote family history. Members can log in and find the new summary under "GSSB Archives." 
We hope to continue this each year to give an overview of our activities, accomplishments and news related to the Society.  It should also act as a quick reference guide if looking back at the past year. If you are already logged in and want to take a look, click this link.
