The SBSGS meets 10 times per year, on the third Thursday of each month except for July and August. Meetings start at 7:00 PM; the Library is open at 6:15 PM when we have in-person meetings.

In-person meetings are conducted in a hybrid format so members can also attend via Zoom if they wish. During the very cold months we hold meetings via Zoom only. We meet at #1 – 1730 Quebec Avenue in Saskatoon (this space is shared with the Saskatchewan Archaeological Society).

Meeting dates for 2023-24 wil be:

Sep 21, 2023 (hybrid)
Oct 19 (hybrid)
Nov 16 (hybrid)
Dec 14 (Zoom) *changed to 2nd Thursday because of holiday season

The Library opens at 6:15 PM on hybrid meeting nights. Meetings begin at 7:00 PM and consist of: a program, discussion period and refreshment break. Depending on questions and discussion, meetings wrap up around 8:30 PM. Occasionally the meeting format varies for special events, such as an Open House and Genealogy Fair and workshops.

Program content varies, but may include presentations by guest speakers or members, discussion sessions for members to share experiences, or webinars. Tours of relevant sites such as museums may be organized as well.

Topics for programs generally focus on genealogical resources (e.g., Provincial Archives of Saskatchewan), skills development (e.g., use of DNA to remove brick walls), family history success stories, or anything else of interest to members.

The Branch also holds an Annual General Meeting in March each year, in accordance with the SBSGS Policies and Procedures (see the Board page).

PLEASE NOTE: Most Branch meeting presentations are recorded and posted on a private YouTube channel for those members who are unable to attend the meeting, or those who wish to watch the program again.

If anyone has an idea for a program topic or speaker, please contact Linda Suveges, Program and Education Coordinator at sbsgs.programs@sasktel.net.

Meeting Cancellations:

In the province of Saskatchewan, weather can be "interesting".  This means that in-person meetings may be cancelled or converted to Zoom-only, if bad weather occurs.

If a meeting has been cancelled or its format changed, a notice will be posted on the website's Home Page and on Facebook. Members will also receive an email message.
