TNGS Special Interest Groups (SIG's)
A Special Interest Group (SIG) is a means by which a small group of people can share information about a specific subject. SIGs are led by a facilitator, not a presenter. The facilitator will introduce a topic for which the group then shares ideas and techniques. SIGs may be organized around the following:
a) basic genealogical techniques and practices;
b) geographical areas, countries of ancestral origin, or common ancestral ethnicity; or
c) tools used in genealogical research, such as genetics or computer software.
The Tennessee Genealogical Society has formed two initial SIGs: DNA and Family Tree Maker (FTM). These groups will meet on a regular basis at the Society’s office. Meetings will be informal with the group making decisions on topics and frequency of meetings. Our SIGs will be free and open to the public. There will be no formal membership, but the facilitator will maintain a list of participants.
