Special Interest Groups (SIG)

The WGS has introduced a DNA and a Technology Special Interest Group (SIG), adding to our already successful Genealogy Talk SIG which has been meeting for several years. The DNA and Technology SIGs are conducted in the virtual world using ZOOM. Genealogy Talk is in person in the Wichita Public Library. See the details below for each SIG.


SIG Meetings are for Members Only,  one of the benefits of being a member of the Wichita Genealogical Society.
