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 - October 2021
With the arrival of this SGES October Newsletter we are all made aware of how quickly it seems the year of 2021 has passed. We hope to begin our monthly meetings soon if the pandemic slows. We continue to open the SGES Library for your use each Wednesday, 10:00-3:00. We have had some researchers use our printed resources as well as the FamilySearch Center website during the past weeks.
SGES Membership renewals for 2022 will be mailed to our members in November so be looking for your renewal form soon. Membership renewal is also available at any time online on the membership page.
Finally, we have started the process to select new SGES Board Members for the 2022 calendar year. Please forward your nominations to us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you are willing to serve, we plan to fill the positions of President, 1st Vice President, 2nd Vice President, Recording Secretary, Corresponding Secretary, Treasurer, and Historian. A position for Librarian is also available. We would like to receive your nominations by November 1 and new Board Members will begin serving in January 2022.
