New Society of Genealogists website

I mentioned a few days back that the London based Society of Genealogists has a new look website - I've now received a formal press release about it:

Press Release

The Society of Genealogists website has been refreshed and rewritten. The Website contains all the information you would expect to find about the SoG and its remarkable Library along with a new Learn section which includes Record Guides for popular genealogical sources and Hints and Tips on researching your family history, not only in the SoG Library but generally. More resources will be added to the Learn pages in due course.

The new website enables readers to Search SoG Records which means you can search SoG Online Data from its Library (previously known as MySoG) as well as find links for searches in the Society’s Library Catalogue and various lists of names from the Library’s Document Collections of Research Notes, Roll Pedigrees and Members Birth Briefs.

News from and about the Society of Genealogists and the Genealogical Community can be found in the new Society of Genealogists Blog within the new website so don’t forget to bookmark the News pages on our new website or subscribe to the RSS Feeds and of course you can find all our latest news broadcast on Twitter (@SoGGenealogist) and Facebook as usual. (Please note the Society will no longer post news on its old blog, which will remain online as an archive for a little while)

Anyone can register to order Publications from the Society of Genealogists Bookshop or to book a place on our Events and Courses. If you are already registered as an online member with the Society of Genealogists you need do nothing as your existing account details are recorded. All you now need to do is log in with the email address we have on record for you and your validated password and you can view SoG Data Online, order items and update your accounts and membership details. If you haven’t yet validated your membership to use SoG Data Online and other facilities on the site, it’s now easy to do so via the new website.

If you’re not a member of the Society of Genealogists then Benefits of Membership are outlined on the website. It’s even easier to enroll and Join the Society of Genealogists Online Today.
