We have some wonderful news to share!
SGES has received a Certificate of License as a designated FamilySearch affiliate library.
Members and Non-members can access the vast records of FamilySearch at our library on Sauterne Drive. Each person is able to login to this archive using their personal FamilySearch login to do research while in our library. When we are able to open up the library on a regular basis we will welcome guests to take advantage of this great opportunity. A special thanks to Alana Masters for making this happen.
This past week we received two donations to our library collection from our SGES members. These additions are being processed and will be on the library shelves and listed in the inventory soon. When the library opens you will want to come check out what has been added.
Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy. Looking forward to when we can, once again, meet in person.
Southern Genealogist's Exchange Society
Please note that, due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the SGES Library is closed through the month of August and the August monthly meeting has been cancelled.
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.
Wednesdays and Thursdays and the first and third Saturdays - 10 AM - 3 PM:
Except on Holidays.

In accordance with City of Jacksonville guidelines for the Covid-19 Safer at Home restrictions, the SGES library will remain closed for the month of August. The monthly meetings at the Kori Road library will not resume until group gatherings are permitted again. Future meetings will also depend on the reopening of the Jacksonville Public Libraries. Status updates can be viewed by pressing the SGES Calendar of Events button in the Upcoming Events section below. We all have a great opportunity during this “down time” to do more genealogy research (there is ALWAYS more than can be done, right?). All are invited to write an article for future newsletters. Share researching tips, write about your (or someone else’s) ancestors. Send your story in a .doc format as an attachment to email@example.com.
September 2020 will be the 75th anniversary for the end of World War II. There are stories that can be shared about those who served, or life during wartime. It would be interesting to hear those stories. Write a 1-3 paragraph brief for our newsletter. Pictures welcomed.
