Celebrating International Women's Day

This is the first International Women's Day on which BIFHSGO is led by a woman President, Mary Anne Sharpe. The Society has existed for 15 years , it has a majority of women members including several who are genealogy community leaders, so a woman in this leadership role has been long overdue.

Mary Anne has made it a priority to increase the number of members who volunteer for the Society. You can find a list of the jobs here. Many require a minimal time commitment. Others, like one of the best jobs on the Board, Director of Research, are more demanding ... and satisfying.
