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:

Starting Nov 8th the SGES Library is open by appointment only. Appointments must be made at least seven days in advance so that we can control the number of people in the Library at various times. The monthly meetings have been cancelled through the month of January 2021.

The SGES Executive Board has decided to open our Library for research during normal business hours by appointment only stating on Nov 8th.
Appointments must be made at least seven days in advance so that we can control the number of people in the Library at various times.
Recommended social distancing protocol will be observed at all times.
Because of the Covid-19 pandemic, all SGES monthly meetings have been cancelled for 2020. We continue to monitor the pandemic and look forward to returning to monthly meetings as well as opening the library for research.
The 2021 membership renewal forms have been mailed to all SGES members. We also appreciate the financial donations we receive to keep our society operating. There are many expenses with owning a building that do not change with the pandemic. Lawn maintenance, electricity and insurance are just a few expenses that don't end from year to year. Your financial gifts make it possible to continue to offer our genealogy resources to each of you.
