Federation of Genealogical Societies

Reach Out Series

Established in January 2009, the FGS Outreach Committee was formed to create resources for FGS member societies to connect with and engage those outside the immediate genealogical community.

The digital series, Reach Out, includes electronic and print resources for FGS member societies. Current editions of Reach Out include: Youth, College/Universities, Historians, Librarians and Corporate Opportunities/Outside relationships. (An Archives edition will be available in the future.) Each electronic edition contains sections that focus on projects and volunteer opportunities, partnerships, education, membership, financial considerations and letters of agreement.

The FGS Outreach Committee can be contacted at outreach@fgs.org if you have any questions, or would like to share your society's story.
