Special Interest Groups

Want to know more about a geographical area or genealogy topic? One of our Special Interest Groups (SIGs) might be a way to sharpen your knowledge — whether it’s about a particular State, the Caribbean, DNA or the Military.

In addition to attending our regular general meetings, members meet separately at various times in these Special Interest Groups to share and learn information specific to an area of their research. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the groups meet virtually via video meetings, emails or conference calls.
