SBGC MONTHLY MEETING
"Onomastics 101: Everything you ever wanted to know about Given Names, Naming Patterns and Traditions" by Karen Hahn
Genealogy research is
so concerned with following surnames that often we forget to look at given
names in each family. Naming children is never a trivial act. We
will examine a number of "naming patterns" used in early

SBGC MONTHLY MEETING
The August meeting will be an “open forum” and center around helping each other work through questions we have. Not everyone has all the answers but when several people get together they may have experienced something similar to your question/problem concerning your research. You may also have questions on using different databases or various genealogy programs. I can’t guarantee that all of our problems will be solved but we rarely, as a group, get to sit and discuss and help each other.
Decide which item you would like to have discussed and make complete notes on information that you have found and what help you would like. E-mail this to Joann Porter at email@example.com so that she can begin to organize the session. She would also welcome you letting her know what programs and databases you are familiar with so that we can connect to each other in our needs.
Remember, the more we have in attendance the greater possibility that someone will be there to answer your question and you can help others.
DUES ARE DUE
Next year's membership fees are due. Our Membership Committee will accept dues at the July meeting, and the fee remains $20 per person or $30 for a couple. SBGC’s policy is to accept annual dues until October 1 at which time, if payment has not been made, you will be dropped from the mailing list.
