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 currently has one SIG: Writing Your Family History. This group meets on a quarterly basis on the  GoToMeeting platform. They are informal events with the group participating in writing sessions, giving and getting tips. Our SIGs will not be recorded. These sessions will be for members only and the facilitator will maintain a list of participants. Be sure to check the EVENTS section of the website to obtain upcoming dates and to register.

TNGS had two other SIGs: DNA and FTM (FamilyTreeMaker Software). These two are not active at this time. Please contact if you would like to see these reactivated or if you would like to see any others get started. We are always open to new ideas.

NOTE: Due to COVID guideline restrictions, the SIG sessions will only be conducted online using GoToMeeting.  We will be limiting the number of registrants to 20 - 25 people.
