When I joined over twenty years ago, I completed the Birth brief as a matter
of course. My problem was SAG would not accept an amendment when I found my
mother had been adopted and her true parentage could not be recorded. I had
hoped this might be amended at sometime as current information is not fully
Researching Stupples, Merridan, Slatter, Campbell (Scot & NZ).

I am interested because, I originally just joined SOG for Genealogy in
Computing. Upgrading to full membership took 18 months to sort out as it
seems the Membership Database had a few problems in coping. As far as
recall I never received any request to fill in a Birth Brief.
am not alone in missing out on some set of official joining instructions ?
