Our Society Quarterly

The Quarterly averages 60 pages of genealogically significant records. Recently, a 31-page topical index to the Quarterly was featured in Volume 40 Number 4 (2017). Read the Notable Series below and search for an ancestor’s surname at the link. SCCGS strongly encourages thorough exploration of its Quarterly. The Society can supply copies for a small fee, or read it in one of several libraries across the U.S. The effort is often worth the time.
