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.
Library Hours: Wednesdays and Thursdays, and the first and third Saturdays of each month from 10 AM - 3 PM, except on Holidays. However, due to the COVID-19 virus, an appointment must be made at least seven days in advance by either calling 904-778-1000, or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, so that we can control the number of people in the Library at various times.
Monthly Meetings: Our monthly meetings are now held virtually so be sure to check our calendar for meeting links.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE - May 2021
The newsletter for this month gives our readers some helpful information on preserving family photos. Alana Masters recently had a photo of her mother as a young child restored by a local company. It is amazing what can be done to enhance old photos.
Please be on the lookout for an email about our May 8thwebinar. This webinar will be presented by Thomas MacEntee on “Managing the Genealogy Data Monster”. Information will be coming soon on how to login to this webinar.
We have been made aware that not all our members have been receiving emails from SGES. We believe we have this issue corrected. Please contact the library if you have questions concerning email or any other questions or concerns.
Barry works hard to keep our website current with classes, webinars and information. Don’t forget to check it often.
I am looking forward to when we can all meet in person again.
