About the Tri-State Genealogical Society

IN RECOGNITION... The Tri-State Genealogical Society (TSGS) Website was created by Christopher Myers in early July 1996. The site was first reported in the Sep. 1996 issue of the Packet. Shortly after September 1996, Chris was appointed the first official TSGS Webmaster of the official TSGS Website. A lot of expansion and improvements were created by Chris to the site until it evolved into what it is today. He maintained the site until the beginning of 2002.

Chris established one of the very best genealogical websites on the Internet. Only a few professionally built sites even compare to the scope, appearance, functionality, and value to members of the TSGS Website. Thanks, Chris, for your volunteer time, efforts, dedication and expertise. -JGW
