  • Be sure to check the list of upcoming activities on the right side of this page, and click on “View Full Listing” for the details. This list is constantly updated. Are you interested in a series of classes or a workshop or SIG focused on a specific topic? 
  • Self-Directed Study
    • Have your ancestors led you into unfamiliar localities? Do you need to learn more about their countries of origin, religious affiliations, military service, and the records they left behind? The SAGHS library has many resources to support your individual self-study goals. A search of the catalog is a great starting point. A librarian can help you locate books and provide additional suggestions.
  • Online Learning
    • (accessible from the SAGHS Library computers) provides a comprehensive Learning Center that includes self-guided instruction in a variety of record types and research areas.
