Southern Genealogist's Exchange Society
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 and some foreign countries. Many family ancestry's records have also been documented and placed within our library.

The Two Basic Rules of Family History Writing:
1/Do not wait 'until I finish my research’ to get started. You will never finish your research.
2/Do not try to tell everyone everything. You will become overwhelmed and lose your motivation.” –Linda Coffin
