British Isles Special Interest Group

Welcome to the British Isles Special Interest Group (SIG) web page!

The British Isles SIG meets the second Monday of each month at 7:00pm ET via Zoom.
We’d love to have you join us! Please submit your interest to the SIG leader, Lisa Ilowite ( so you can be added to the email list and receive future correspondence.
Because we've recently restarted this SIG, you have the opportunity to help develop the new group as well as discern how to best meet the research needs of our members. 

To start our discussions, we’ll have a theme for each meeting. The theme for the 10 Jun 2024 meeting will be “Stories of our Ancestors’ Immigration.” In preparation for our discussion, please prepare a brief paragraph describing what you know about an ancestor's immigration from the British Isles to the U.S.

For more information and to register for our zoom meetings, please check our website Events calendar or ( for additional details and to confirm dates and topics. Joining and subscribing to North Hills Genealogists will allow you to receive automated updates on all of our NHG activities.
Looking forward to seeing you at our meetings!
