SGS News

Featured speaker will be member Kevin Mittge on DNA for Genealogists.
A very basic look at what DNA is, what DNA can do for you, what it can’t do for you, what companies will test your DNA, what tests they provide and for how much, and what your results will look like.  Sure to be an informative presentation!

Pat Rongey did a great radio interview on KXCR FM 90.7 and discussed her recycle activities.  With Pat’s help, the SGS Recycle Program has not only been a good fundraiser, but has had a positive effect in reducing the amount going into our landfills.
