You will be joining with a group that will assist you in your genealogical research, collection, preservation, and publication of your family's genealogy and history.
The monthly meetings are always interesting and educational. Check the calendar to see the programs for the rest of the year.
For your research RICIGS maintains a collection of genealogical materials including some CDs. The RICIGS Library Collection is housed at the Rock Island County Historical Society Library. (More info) We also welcome contributions to the collection.
Members will receive a printed double quarterly, which is published in the Spring and Fall, and an electronic newsletter in the Summer and Winter.
