England Special Interest Group (SIG)Are you currently doing genealogy research on ancestors in England? Would you like to learn about English genealogy research? Join our England Special Interest Group.
The England SIG meets on the second Monday of each month from 10:00 a.m. to Noon in the Saddleback Room at Mission Viejo City Hall, directly across the plaza from the library. This is a general discussion and information-sharing group for topics relating to English genealogy research, and English history and culture. We explore specific types of English genealogy records, research methods, websites for English genealogy research, questions from our members about their own personal research. Bring your laptop computer to the meeting — power and wi-fi are available in the meeting room.
For more information about the England SIG, contact David Flint.
All SOCCGS in-person meetings, classes and events are closed until further notice during the Corona virus pandemic.
