Starting with our September 2010 newsletter, all members began receiving their copy via E-mail Blast. Members who do not have access to email may request that a paper copy be mailed to them via the US Postal Service. Also, all EGSF Members will have access to an online copy for printing or viewing from home.
Our membership year runs from September 1 through August 31. Membership in the Society is not just for persons researching in the Englewood, Florida and surrounding area; most of our members are "transplants" and are researching other countries and many states other than Florida. Many of our members live at least part of the year throughout the United States, Canada and Europe.
Our meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of the month, except for May, November and December, when we meet on alternate dates. Meeting locations are at Elsie Quirk Library, 100 East Dearborn St., Englewood FL, from 1:30 - 3:30 p.m., on the second floor, in the large meeting room, unless another location is indicated on our website.
Special Seminars are held annually, usually with nationally-known speakers, at a site to be announced.
Anyone with an interest in tracing their ancestors, whether you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced genealogist, are invited to join us at a General Membership Meeting!!
We hope you will join our Society!!
