Welcome! Since 1982, the Wake County Genealogical Society (WCGS) has been aiding genealogists living in or researching in Wake County, North Carolina. Many of our members live in the local area, but we also have members who live elsewhere. Our goal is to facilitate communications among all Wake County researchers, wherever they may live.

Please consider a membership in the WCGS. Experienced genealogists recommend joining a society where you live, for educational and support benefits, and another in the place where you search, for the exchange of research information.

Members and nonmembers are invited to subscribe to the WCGS RootsWeb mailing list for occasional updates regarding the activities of the society. Send an e-mail to with just the word subscribe in the body of the message.

We are unable to offer research services. For information about Wake County genealogical research, please visit the Links page.
