After announcing the launch of their new website a couple of months ago, the British Society of Genealogists website is now online.
The news release is as follows:
“The Society of Genealogists website www.sog.org.uk has been refreshed and rewritten. The Website contains all the information you would expect to find about the SoG and its remarkable Library along with a new Learn section which includes Record Guides for popular genealogical sources and Hints and Tips on researching your family history, not only in the SoG Library but generally.
The new website enables readers to Search SoG Records which means you can search SoG Online Data from its Library (previously known as MySoG) as well as find links for searches in the Society’s Library Catalogue and various lists of names from the Library’s Document Collections of Research Notes, Roll Pedigrees and Members Birth Briefs.
News from and about the Society of Genealogists and the Genealogical Community can be found in the new Society of Genealogists Blog within the new website so don’t forget to bookmark the News pages on our website or subscribe to the RSS Feeds and of course you can find all our latest news broadcast on Twitter and Facebook as usual.
Anyone can register to order Publications from the Society of Genealogists Bookshop or to book a place on our Events and Courses. If you are already registered as an online member with the Society of Genealogists you need do nothing as your existing account details are recorded. All you need to do is log in with the email address we have on record for you and your validated password and you can view SoG Data Online, order items and update your accounts and membership details. If you haven’t yet validated your membership to use SoG Data Online it’s easy to do so via the new website.

“You will no longer have to be in a dedicated Members area (MySoG) to access our data online or to shop with your member discount. Instead, when you login you will be able to update your profile and do all the things you can at the moment, but should you decide to leave the profile area, as long as you are logged in, you will be able to go anywhere on the site and it will recognise you as a Member.””
