Welcome to the Washington County Arkansas Genealogical Society Web site. It is the objectives of Washington County Arkansas Genealogical Society, WCAGS, to collect and preserve genealogical and historical information with a focus on Washington County, Arkansas. We wish to encourage and provide training to those interested. We champion ethical and accurate research and publication of genealogical and historical information.
Our meetings are held the second Sunday of every month at 2:00 pm at The Headquarters House on Dickson St. in Fayetteville, AR.
WCAGS was formed in 2002 and was the brainchild of Peggy Hackler of the Fayetteville Public Library. She approached some folks who frequently did research in the Grace Keith Collection about starting a genealogy group and from there the Washington County Arkansas Genealogical Society took shape. The first slate of officers was Carol Reel, president; Marvin Shirley, vice–president; Cheri Coley, secretary; Kyle Spicer, treasurer.
