The Southern Genealogist's Exchange Society (SGES) is a FamilySearch Affiliate Library and 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 - May 2023
We just became aware that due to early voting at the Mandarin Library we will be unable to have our meeting this Saturday, May 13th, in person and will only be able to do it via Zoom. We apologize for the inconvenience and late notice. We will miss seeing you in person but hope to see you virtually! This meeting will be available via Zoom and the link will be emailed in the meeting reminder email at a later date. John Strasburg’s lecture is titled “Stop Battling with Military Records.” The goal is to help you become more comfortable around military records and how to obtain them for use in genealogical research.
Speaker Bio: John Strasburg is a genealogist who specializes in military records research and enjoys helping others discover their ancestral past. A retired U.S. Coast Guard commissioned officer, John holds a bachelor’s degree in political science from SUNY Stony Brook, a master’s degree in library & information science from the University of South Florida, and a certificate in genealogical research from Boston University’s Metropolitan School, Center for Professional Education. Originally from Western New York State, John currently resides in South Carolina’s Lowcountry with his wife Luisa.
We are planning a field trip for our June 10th meeting and will provide the details once they are confirmed.
As a friendly reminder, we still need volunteers to help cover the library and are looking for someone who could assist with our monthly newsletter. Please contact us if you would like to help.
