...or are you just looking for a nice genealogy group to join over the summer?
SMCGS is running three special interests groups via Zoom this summer.  It's easy, it's fun, and all you  need is a computer with sound (video is nice too).  And it's FREE to members of SMCGS!
Here's what's happening in the groups:

The German Interest Group (GIG) held its first meeting via Zoom on Thursday, May 14.  Approximately 7 members participated and shared recent discoveries in their German research. The consensus of the group was that the online format worked well and was more convenient for members with long commutes to the Family History Center in Menlo Park.
The next Zoom meeting will be on Thursday, June 11. SMCGS members who would like to join the GIG should contact

The British Irish Group (BIG) has had a couple of meetings.  As people are joining us we introduce ourselves and our interests.  Some of our areas of interest are: Cork, Yorkshire x3, Wales, Co. Cavan,  Co. Laois,  Malahide, Co. Mayo, Lancashire x2, Gloucestershire, Limerick x3, Somerset, Lanarkshire, Cheshire, Devon, Wiltshire and "somewhere in Ireland" (very popular).  John Gleed has joined us again from the wilds of Michigan, and has a wealth of knowledge on British research.
