IT’S MEMBERSHIP TIME!
Are you currently a Saskatchewan Genealogical Society (SGS)/Saskatoon Branch SGS member? Are you interested in becoming a member? Membership information and access to the application form can be found at https://saskgenealogy.com/membership-fees/.
In case you haven't heard, SGS has a Growth Incentive Membership for 2024. This year, if a current SGS member partners with a new or returning member (a past member who hasn’t been a member for 3 years), each person will get 40% off the SGS annual membership fee! If you are interested in partnering, SBSGS might be able to help connect a current and potential member for the benefit of both! Just let us know if you are interested by sending an email to email@example.com. Don't forget to add a membership in the Saskatoon Branch when completing the application so you have access to our programs, chat groups, library and other benefits.
Bear Tracks Ice Melter SALE!
Why not get ready for winter NOW! We will have pails of BEAR TRACKS Ice Melter available at the SBSGS Branch Meeting on November 16. Buy one for yourself or for a friend (Christmas is coming too!). It’s a good deal at $20 for a 16 kg pail. More information can be found here, including who to contact to purchase some at any other time.
We are partnering with Tru Earth for a fundraiser for the Branch. If you purchase Tru Earth products through our link (https://tru-earth.sjv.io/SGSSaskatoonbranch) we receive a percentage of the sales. The link is valid for use by anyone in Canada or the United States so feel free to share it.
Tru Earth is a Canadian company that focuses on creating eco-friendly household goods. Right now, they are holding a Holiday Sale (https://www.tru.earth/Holiday-Sale-2023) with offers such as Holiday Bundles (great gifts!) or Buy One, Get One, Give One (TruEarth donates products to those in need). Watch for weekly specials as well!
Tru Earth has recently partnered with Eco-Collective, a company which offers eco-friendly everyday products like reusable produce bags and containers, beeswax food wraps, and dryer balls. They promise plastic free products, plastic free shipping and 100% reusable products. Any orders sent through our link (http://ecoc.sjv.io/genealogysaskatoon) will provide a donation to SBSGS.
If you find it useful to keep track of ancestors on paper, we have 7-generation (pedigree format) and 10-generation (fan format) charts for sale. They are 24x36 inches, and are $10.00 each. Just ask Peggy or Jane at a Branch meeting, or contact Peggy at firstname.lastname@example.org to purchase one.
