SGS is delighted to announce a new program, "Virtual Sundays: Something Old, Something New."  With the move to our new home in the Good Shepherd building, we will be unable to offer Sunday hours. But we can still connect virtually.  Beginning in October, Jill Morelli will host a lecture and discussion on the third Sunday of every month via Zoom.  Join us for this inaugural offering, "Fire Insurance Maps: The Google Maps of Their Day."  After all, October is Fire Prevention Month, in honor of the Chicago Fire.
 
Speaker: Jill Morelli, CG, is a writer, lecturer, and researcher specializing in the methodology, US Midwest, and Scandinavia. In 2017, she founded the online “Certification Discussion Group,” sharing her journey and demystifying the process of submission of a portfolio to the Board for Certification of Genealogists.  Jill is past president of the Seattle Genealogical Society and co-founder of the Applied Genealogy Institute.

Up to about 1870, farming was the number one occupation. You probably have a large number of farmers in your family. There are many record sets such as land, tax, and probate records that document our farming ancestors. Newspapers and many agricultural records can add context to their story.
 
Speaker: Lisa S. Gorrell is a Certified Genealogist®, a ProGen graduate, and an alumnus of multiple genealogical institutes.  She gives genealogy presentations and writes about her family on two blogs: “Mam-ma’s Southern Family” (http://mam-massouthernfamily.blogspot.com/) and “My Trails into the Past” (http://mytrailsintothepast.blogspot.com/). She has also written a three-generation family history about her husband’s Swedish ancestors.
