Leaders Needed for FRGS Special Interest Groups
Would you like to try your hand at leading an FRGS SIG? Special Interest Groups within genealogical societies exist for members to focus on topics that are specifically relevant to their individual areas of interest. SIGs can pertain to nationality (German, Irish, British), geographic area (Virginia), and genealogical study focus (technology, methodology, family history writing).
SIGs typically meet monthly but can meet quarterly if the group so decides. Meetings usually are quite informal, with question/answer and discussion sessions or a meeting focused on a particular topic. Occasionally, outside speakers are brought in. The SIG leader organizes and publicizes the meeting, recommends the format or topic for the meetings, and reports back to the general membership on SIG activities.
If you have a Special Interest that you’re passionate about and would like to look into creating and leading (or perhaps co-leading) one, email us at FRGSVA@gmail.com or talk to one of the Executive Council members at the next society meeting.
