What's New

Request from CCGS President

There are many places CCGS uses to communicate with you, our members, and with the genealogical community at large. Some of these venues are, seemingly, more effective than others. We are forming a small focus group of interested members to take a quick look at where and how we communicate and how well we market ourselves. This will be a short-lived, goal oriented group with the express goal of determining how we can communicate more effectively. If you have some experience/expertise in group communication and/or marketing and would be willing to invest a couple of hours every other week for a total of three meetings please contact Thanks for your consideration.
