Southern Appalachians Genealogical Association

I want to give a shout out to the Southern Appalachians Genealogical Association (SAGA) which is a brand new organization for researchers interested in the Appalachian areas of Alabama, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee. 

I have written an article for the inaugural issue of their quarterly newsletter.  If you want to read “The Georgia Archives Endures” you will need to join this association.  You can read more about what they have planned for their newsletter HERE.  Their website will keep you up to day with the happenings in the area and give you information about pertinent resources.  They also have some projects planned to get more resources in the hands of their members.  One of the things they have planned for the future is an annual academic journal edited by Michael Hait, CG.  Michael is a very knowledgeable and well-respected member of the genealogical community and I know this journal will be excellent.  You can read more about him in Spotlight – Michael Grant Hait, Jr., CG. This association has a lot of promise and you just might want to get in on it on the ground floor.
