Connecticut Society of Genealogists Library Closed Until Further Notice

As the State of Connecticut continues to respond to the rapidly changing circumstances created by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Connecticut Society of Genealogists' library will be closed to the public indefinitely. This means that there will be no Genealogy Help Sessions on Thursday, March 26 or April 9, and whether there will be a session on April 23 is questionable.
The status of our scheduled April 18 program featuring Ed Strickland speaking on "More Than a Will" is also questionable.

In addition, in response to the Governor's policy requesting "nonessential" workers to stay home, CSG's office staff will not be available to answer telephone calls but can respond to emails and will be continuing to process dues, which may be mailed to us or paid through our website.

Be sure to check our Website, and follow our posts on Facebook and Twitter for updates on the status of our April 18 program and May 16 Annual Meeting, and other news for the genealogy community.

We'll do our best to continue to keep you informed about what's happening at CSG. If you have any questions, please contact us at gro.cnigsc|cnigsc#gro.cnigsc|cnigsc. Please do not reply to this email as it is not checked and only used for sending out mass emails.

The Connecticut Ancestry Society is pleased to present Artist and Book Designer Shelley Lowell and Genealogy Teacher Janeen Bjork as they present "You Should Write a Book," a program based on their collaboration on two family history books, and the many questions they have been asked about their work.
