Meetings are usually held on the third Saturday at 2:00 pm in the Athens-Clarke County Public Library auditorium, but variations in this schedule are not uncommon. Meetings are announced in the COGS Quarterly, via email, and at this web site on the Meetings page. Although most meetings are free and open to the public, membership is encouraged to enable C.O.G.S. to bring in quality speakers that will help further our understanding as family history researchers. Dues are also used to purchase resources for local libraries and offset costs to preserve historical data.
