Summer Sizzler Registration Opens
Today marks the opening registration for the popular Summer Sizzler 2017.  The Summer Sizzler is a partnership event put on by the Oklahoma Historical Society and Oklahoma Genealogical Society.
OGS is proud to partner with OHS for the Summer Sizzler 2017.  The topics and speakers are designed to be enjoyable and informative.  We are very fortunate to have outstanding genealogists and speakers within OHS and OGS.  This all-star team will feature some of your favorite speakers/subjects led by a general session on Friday with Dr. Bob Blackburn.  Dr. Blackburn is the Executive Director of the Oklahoma Historical Society and the state’s leading historian.  You will not want to miss his presentation.
Other all-stars include favorites such as Bill Welge, Debra Spindle, Mahlon Erickson, Jim Ike and others.  The format is for a general session on both Friday and Saturday mornings with the afternoon to have breakout classes on both days.  
Seating is limited in some of the afternoon classes and will be filled on a first come, first serve basis.  Reserve your seat today and take advantage of the early bird discount.  You can register on-line or print off the registration form for mail-in.
There will not be a Fall Seminar so this is the year’s final workshop event.  Take advantage of the early bird discount and reserve your seat at your favorite topic today.  OGS and OHS appreciate your support.  This event assists the funding of both organizations so that we can continue to provide you with the best genealogical experience possible.

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.
