To provide enhanced membership services to GSCC members who share a special interest in Canadian genealogy.
To offer an ongoing means of learning and communication among those members of the society.
A Canadian SIG has existed within the GSCC for over 10 years. In addition to providing general support year-round in person meetings were held at the Naples Central Library “in season” during the month of January, February, and March each year.
When COVID-19 struck in 2020 and continued into 2021 the activities of the GSCC Canadian SIG ground to a halt. But, as a result of the pandemic, many of us found the best new way of communicating and discussing our genealogical efforts was online via ZOOM or similar applications. Thus, in 2022 the GSCC 🇨🇦 eSIG was born.
