The August issue of "The News & Notes," quarterly newsletter of the Southern California Genealogical Society, is now available on the Society’s website.
This is the next-to-the-last issue of "The News & Notes." After seven and a half years of reporting news and events at SCGS, "The News & Notes" will cease publication with the November 2010 issue.
So, what will take the place of "The News & Notes"? We will take advantage of new technology to send out monthly e-updates and as well as overnight notices of time-sensitive information. Subscribe to stay in touch.
We are moving away from the CA-SCGS Rootsweb email list and are using a commercial email management service, Constant Contact. We will issue monthly updates that will feature SCGS projects, interest groups and programs, photos, volunteers and other items of interest to our members.
You may have already received one of our e-Updates. If not, you can sign up to receive monthly electronic updates at www.scgsgenealogy.com. Add your email address in the upper right corner where you see "Sign Up for Free Email Updates from SCGS."
Overnight Notices through the Blog
Through the Society's blog, readers will get reminders of events, new databases and resources available to researchers, and up-to-the-minute announcements of bargains offered by genealogy suppliers.
Blog posts from both the SCGS and Jamboree blogs are automatically set to appear on the main page of the SCGS website. You can subscribe to have emails delivered directly to your inbox whenever a message has been posted to the blog. Emails are sent out automatically at about 3:00 a.m. and they will be there for you in the morning. To subscribe, just enter your email in the upper right hand box of the blog where it says "subscribe by email."
Your email address will never be released or shared with any other organization.
So... there you are.
