Sirius Genealogy 2.0 (SG2) is pleased to announce that we have completed our transformation from a simple blog, into a complete online community for Amateur & Professional Genealogists. The old blog has been shut down and a new membership site has been launched and is publicly available. Membership is FREE! In addition to the general community atmosphere, SG2 has developed numerous Google Gadgets, Web Tools and other services to assist genealogists in their mission. Many more eliciting tools are on their way!
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you back to our site to look at the many changes we have made and encourage you to give us your feedback. Although most of the content areas do not require a membership to view, we hope you will consider joining our community so that you can participate in its development and take advantage of the many member only features.
