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.
