New things are happening at the Southern Genealogist's Exchange Society.
First, we have a newly redesigned website which is finally located at the proper domain. This reflects the fact that we are a non-profit organization, recognized as an educational organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The old website is still active.
SGES is having a fund-raiser which is fun and original. Go here, and you will see the announcement of the "Mother's Day Tea." You do not have to dress up or bake little goodies. At the right on the website is a list of options, including "submit a maiden." This brings up the form on which you can submit a female ancestor by maiden name. You may also upload a photograph. Select "make your donation" to see the suggested price list for submissions. Any donation is appreciated. There is a deadline: May 9. Let's honor our mothers and grandmothers and other female ancestors who have shaped our lives.
Continue to visit the site over the next few weeks as the Maiden Name Wall will expand and photographs continuously added to the slide show.
SGES is also now listed on Facebook, under The Southern Genealogist's Exchange Society, Inc. We invite you to "like" us and keep up with developments in genealogy and the activities of the society.
