Also known as SIGs, these "member only" specialized groups were created to assist members with their genealogy efforts. Most groups meet monthly at Banner–University Medical Center in conference rooms just off the cafeteria. Meetings usually last about two hours, however, you should check the PCGS Calendar listing for the most up-to-date meeting day/time/location.
SIG meetings are informal and provide a great way to share genealogy research techniques and ask questions. If you have an interest in a particular area of genealogy that you feel should have a SIG, please let us know.
Wi-fi is available in the meeting rooms and parking is free. If you need more information about any SIG, contact us at: email@example.com.
Family Tree Maker: How to best use this popular genealogy software program on both PC and Mac platforms is the focus of the group -- for beginners and experienced users alike. Members meet to discuss and show hands-on application operations and features. Bring your laptop to meetings, if you like. Meetings are held the 3rd Saturday of the month from 10:00AM-12:00PM -- check the Calendar for meeting room location.
DNA SIG: Get answers to your DNA questions and guidance on interpreting your results. The first half of the meeting is a review of basic concepts and Q&A or a case study. The second half is a planned topic of the month and discussion of DNA developments. The DNA SIG meets one Saturday a month from 9:30AM-11:30AM. Please check the Calendar for the date and meeting room location.
