The Society of Genealogists - Digital Collections by Elsie Churchill

From 13 September 2022 19:15 until 13 September 2022 21:15
Else Churchill is the Genealogist at the Society of Genealogists (SoG) in London and a member of the Lords Chancellor’s Advisory Council on National Records and Archives. She has over 30 years of experience as a genealogist. Formerly a professional genealogical librarian and researcher, Else has worked for the SoG since 1994. She now leads on external liaison, representation and communications; the Society's education and publishing programmes as well as being the Society's subject specialist. Else will discuss the online digital collections of the Society of Genealogists Library. In addition to providing a library and research facility for family history, the Society holds some unique records and archives. While not a public archive per se the SoG is often an archive of last resort, providing a home for records that might otherwise have been destroyed. Many of the SoG's digital collections are produced as a result of volunteer projects, which have been powering away at home during lockdown. Please email Margaret Spate at using Zoom Sept.13 in the subject line to express an interest in attending this meeting. I will forward joining instructions a few days before the meeting
