Exciting News-OGS Quarterly
OGS is excited to announce the OGS Quarterly is going electronic.  In an effort to be the best stewards with your membership dollars and our environmental resources the OGS Quarterly will now be sent to you via the Members Only section within our OGS website. By going electronic we are saving over $4,000 per year and can use those savings to increase membership benefits and pursue our mission. Many genealogical and historical societies are going electronic or have stopped doing a quarterly.   Please be sure to update your email information in the Members section to insure you receive an email when the E-Quarterly is posted.  We are proud of our Quarterly and by going electronic we can do additional things to enhance the Quarterly.  On behalf of the OGS Board, we thank you for being part of the OGS family and your support.  If you have any trouble signing on the Members Only section of the OGS web please contact our Webmaster at webmaster@okgensoc.org or use the Web Contact form on the Home page under Contact us or call 405-637-1907.

Welcome to our new web site
Welcome to the new and improved OGS web site.  I want to thank Walt Stoyanoski and Paul Woods for their many hours of work on getting us up and running.  We have plans to phase in some exciting new features in the future.
 
As we add additional features, you will be able to manage your membership, shop for our existing and future genealogical products, and register for workshops and seminars.  We will also have a Members Only section where we will add premium research content and other information that will enhance your membership.
 
The much anticipated OGS/Oklahoma Historical Society’s Summer Sizzler is scheduled for August 4 & 5.  Dr. Bob Blackburn headlines an all-star panel of presenters who will provide informative and entertaining topics around genealogy and family history.  Registration for the Summer Sizzler will begin Monday, June 26th.  Seating will be limited in some of the classes we will offer so if you want a seat we encourage you to register early.  First come, first served, plus there will be an Early Bird discount for you to take advantage of.  There will not be a Fall Seminar this year so with the Summer Sizzler being the last workshop this year we are anticipating a good turn-out.
 
We will use the President’s message to communicate important information about OGS and your membership.  Please check back frequently.  For those who are current OGS members we appreciate you being a member and we will work hard to insure you get the most value for your membership dollars.  If your membership has expired or you aren’t a current OGS member we invite you to join.  We hope you enjoy the web site and look for continued enhancements and features as we continue to build.  We always look forward to hearing from you and see you at the Summer Sizzler.
