Hi

I just wanted to thank all members who came out to the Heritage Festival on February 1st to mann the table, and to the members who put up display tables at our Open House this past Thursday.

Without your help we could not do the things that we do and let our presence be known to the public.

We had a lot of interest in our group from the people who came out to the Heritage Festival.

As for the Open House we had 19 members come out.  9 members set up display tables, we had Cameron Hart from the Saskatchewan Archives come out with a display, 10 members came out to see what other members were doing, and we had 6 people come through for the Open House.  3 of these people heard about us at the Heritage Festival, 2 heard about us from a flyer and one was attending another event in the building and came up to see about the Genealogy Society. 

 

Thank you again to all who came out.  I also want to say welcome to our visitors it was a pleasure meeting you and I hope that you will come join us in the future.

Now that our new website has been launched, we need to think about how best to use the features it offers and to identify any additional features which would enhance the experience.

I am going to describe briefly our vision for using the blog as well as our Facebook account, and describe how a members' forum might work.

Only society members with an account can post to the blog. On the other hand the blog is open for those without an account on a read-only basis.

Our Facebook account Saskatoon Genealogy Group (SBSGS) is not private and many of our members and some non-members are following and contributing.

Eventually we would like to have a forum open to members to discuss issues relating to the functioning of our society.

Feedback is welcome, either by email or by commenting directly though the blog structure.
