*Welcome to the New SCGA Website*
The SURRY COUNTY GENEALOGICAL ASSOCIATION will MEET MONDAY, May 12, 2014 AT 7:00 PM at SURRY COMMUNITY COLLEGE in the TEACHING AUDITORIUM. The Speaker will be Dr.Cynthia Doxey Green, who taught family history at Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, before moving to Winston-Salem, N.C. where she now volunteers at the local Family History Center in Winston Salem which is on Jonestown Rd.
Her presentation is “Using Genograms in Genealogy”. Genograms are graphs which illustrate the structure and characteristics of families across three or more generations. While not replacing pedigree charts for genealogy, they allow us to look beyond the names, dates, and places, to see inter-generational family traits and patterns. They add flesh to the bones of a pedigree chart.” Did people in your family die from Heart Disease, or how many different counties did your family live in? This is a way to keep up with that.
This meeting is FREE and everyone is invited. Make Genealogy a Family Affair. Come and learn the History of the County and The Genealogy of the people. For more info. call 1-336-831-6437 or email Esther Johnson EPDJ1@triad.rr.com Surry Co. Gen. Assn. Web Page http://surrygenealogy.wordpress.com/

Attention!! Information for all our members and visitors to our genealogy room at the college – Our genealogy room has been moved – it still is on the same floor (2nd floor above the SCC Library) but was moved to the other side of the floor. Significant improvements were done. None of this would not have been possible without Carlos Surratt. Our genealogical association was founded by Carlos Surratt, Dean of Evening Programs at SCC from 1967 – 1994. Please click http://libguides.surry.edu/carlos for more information about this gifted and personable man.

The Surry County Genealogical Association is a non-profit organization formed in 1981. Its purpose is to create and foster interest in genealogy, assist those persons interested in compiling family histories, and to share ideas that may aid in more accurate research.
The SCGA grew out of a genealogy class taught by Carlos Surratt, Evening Dean at Surry Community College. He had long hoped for such an organization and was largely instrumental in bringing together a county-wide group.
