South Suburban Genealogical & Historical Society


You are invited to enroll in one or more of the three genealogical classes to be held on three Saturday mornings this Spring. Presented at the intermediate level (class members should have at least a basic knowledge of and exposure to genealogy to gain full value from these classes), classes will be presented by members of the SSGHS experienced in their topic of presentation. You may sign up for one or more of the classes. Within the capacity of the Library, registration will be on a first come, first served basis. All participants MUST pre-register. No walk-ins can be accepted.
