We Hold 20+ Meetings Each Year

Check the News Flash on the right side of most pages or our Events page for upcomming events in the area. Our meetings include:

  • Nine monthly, evening, General Meetings - September through May (We take the summer off.)
  • Six bi-monthly Daytime Meetings (odd numbered months: January, March, May, etc.)
  • Six bi-monthly Genealogy Computer Interest Group open discussion meetings (even numbered months: February, April, June, etc.)

General and daytime meetings feature a speaker covering topics of interest to genealogy and local history researchers.
