The Southern Genealogist's Exchange Society (SGES) is a non-profit genealogy society in Jacksonville, FL, providing information and resources for genealogists since 1964. Members and non-members alike are always welcome and encouraged to browse through the over 6,000 books, periodicals and quarterlies published by other genealogical organizations. We also have many volumes covering special subjects like Revolutionary War Soldiers, Civil War soldiers, and the Great Puritan Migration, all within the SGES library. These resources cover the United States as well as some foreign countries. Many family ancestry's records have also been documented and placed within our library.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - September 2021
The new COVID Delta variant has made Florida one of the hot spots of the nation for infection. The Jacksonville area hospitals are at full capacity with COVID patients.
In view of this surge in COVID cases, the SGES Board has decided to postpone the restart of our Monthly SGES Meetings until further notice. We will continue to monitor the COVID rates and make a decision later regarding resumption of our meetings.
The next SGES monthly webinar will be held on Friday, September 10thwith Dr. Josh Goodman. The topic will be “Using Land Documents in Family History Research”. Members of SGES will receive an email the week of this webinar with the link to log on to the website.
Alana Masters will be facilitating a class on “Digging Deeper in Genealogy Research” as part of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) with the UNF Continuing Education Department. If you are an OLLI member look for the class in the fall catalogue. You can also register for any of the OLLI classes including Genealogy classes at https://www.unf.edu/ce/olli/. We are excited that Alana has been recruited to teach a class and further the goals of SGES.
Please check the SGES website often. Barry Sweetman, updates the site regularly with new information about online webinars and classes.
