Special Interest Groups
NHG has formed Special Interest Groups (SIGs) to provide an additional education opportunity for members. Each SIG focuses on a particular topic—an ethnic group, a state, a type of record, et cetera.
We currently have a German, Pennsylvania, Eastern European, and British Isles research, as well as a Writing, SIG and a DNA SIG which is focused on DNA and Genetic Genealogy research. Each of the SIGs can be contacted via the email shown on their website page (see the list of SIGs along the left-side of this page). When you sign up, include any topic or topics in which you have an interest.
The SIGs are an excellent way to work in a small-group setting on specific aspects of your research, and benefit from the experiences of others involved in working with similar records and idiosyncracies.
One great way to stay up-to-date with the Special Interest Group happenings is through Meetup.com - if you go there and sign up (it's free) then search for "North Hills Genealogists" to receive automated notifications about our meetings.
