Special Interest Groups

Great Lakes Region SIG

Facilitators:  Kim Thurman


Meeting Schedule:  every other month on the 2nd Wednesday, 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm (PT)




This group meets online.

Thanks to its natural waterways, the Great Lakes region played a pivotal role in the western migration and industrialization of 19th century America.  Join us to discuss the original Northwest Territory: its diverse ethnic and political history, geography and migration routes, and research resources in the area.

The facilitation of this special interest group is a joint effort between the Genealogical Forum of Oregon (GFO) and the Rogue Valley Genealogical Society (RVGS).  These meetings are free and open to the public.
