52 Weeks to Better Genealogy – Challenge 45 – Genealogy Societies

52 Weeks To Better Genealogy

52 Weeks To Better Genealogy – Challenge 45

Week 45: Examine genealogy societies in your region. Many genealogists belong to their local societies, but it’s helpful to be aware of other organizations within a few hours of your home. Sometimes these societies have good programs or resources to share. Cyndi’s List has an impressive Societies and Groups Index to browse, but it might not include certain smaller or newer societies. You may have to do some creative keyword searching on the Internet to find a list of societies near you. Use this week to see what types of groups meet in your part of the county, state or country. Don’t forget groups with specific research interests, such as ethnic societies. Genealogy bloggers can use this week to highlight some of the societies in their neck of the woods.

This challenge runs from Saturday, November 6, 2010 through Friday, November 12, 2010.
