Greetings Good Gentles,
You and your family are most warmly welcomed into the lands of Northkeep. 
This is the best Barony you will find in the Known World...if I do say so 
myself. Northkeep is a place mode of people from all walks of life who 
embrace the dream that is the SCA together. There is a weekly meeting on 
Wednesdays being a fighter practice that has become so much more...it truly 
is a one stop shop for most SCA activities. Tulsa itself if a good town 
currently rated the 5th best place to live in the USA. There are some 
regions in the northern part of town you may want to avoid but most parts of 
town offer good, average, and only okay neighborhoods. Do you know where you 
will be employed? That will help us in narrowing down the areas close to 
that location for housing and education.

As for your interests in research and guilds I think that you may be able to 
find yourself some good company here.
