 find their  ancestors and connect with the past.

Provide enlightening speakers at the monthly meetings
on relative topics to aid, assist and better our research.

Promote the use of and growth of our genealogy research
room develop our resources and grow our collection.

Society Dues are used to purchase books relevant to the
research our members are involved with and to provide
speakers that benefit our research.

Society Members are special people. The monthly meetings are gatherings of good times shared as well as sharing of useful research tools or ideas.

We are lucky to share similar ideals and goals with four
other  Genealogy Societies in our area,  sharing collections, ideas and  most importantly, connections.
