Society of Genealogists reader offer

Some news of a major update from the London based Society of Genealogists (www.sog.org.uk), and a reader offer for all you wonderful followers of The GENES Blog:

The Society of Genealogist has announced its new membership structure and extra elements for the dedicated Members’ area for the website www.sog.org.uk . In addition to the existing digital data from the library collections the website now has an enhanced members’ Learning Zone with online courses, research aids, record guides and tips. This will be added to throughout the year with online beginners and intermediate level courses to follow shorty. Additionally the rather antiquated Rootsweb SoG members email service has been replaced with a dedicated themed members’ community hub for further education matters and members discussion, help and advice.

The membership fee has been restructured with new rates to create a dedicated associate online only (£56) membership and full membership (£80). Details are available on the SoG website at http://www.sog.org.uk/membership/.

Existing members and overseas members can be assured they will not see any change to status, voting rights or large increase in subs though we expect some overseas members in due course to become associate members.

Readers of The GENES Blog can receive a 25% discount on full or associate membership by using the code BG25 upon signing up. This offer will expires on 28 Feb 2018.

Don't say we're not good to ye now! :)
