Welcome 

Our Society provides a lively forum for resource sharing, mutual assistance, and instruction for those interested in family history and genealogy. Beginners as well as more experienced genealogists profit from monthly lectures on topics relating to genealogy.

Since our origin in 1988 at the Joint Free Public Library of Morristown and Morris Township, our Society has grown and we now meet at the Morris County Library*, 30 East Hanover Ave., Whippany, NJ on the first Tuesday evening of the month. Visitors are welcome at our monthly meetings. Refreshments are served at 6:30; the program begins at 7:00.

If a monthly meeting needs to be cancelled, every effort is made by the MAGS Board to notify the Morris County Library before 3 pm, with a cancellation notification posted on this page of this website. When in doubt, please call the Morris County Library directly.

Among the benefits of membership are a subscription to the quarterly Morris Area Genealogy Society Newsletter and participation in our Special Interest Groups which focus on particular challenges and topics such as research strategies in a smaller, less formal setting.

Members are encouraged to volunteer their time and share their expertise by serving on committees.

*Directions to the Library. Telephone number: 973-285-6930.

How to Make Sure You Are Researching the Correct Family: Susan Simon   
Many of us have heard stories about our ancestors. Are the stories true? Any part of the story true? Can I accept what my grandmother or mother told me about my family? You may find contradictory stories or 'facts' about your ancestors. How do you decide which version is correct? This presentation will help you use reliable sources in researching your ancestors to determine correctness of the stories.

Susan Simon is VP and Program Chair of Morris Area Genealogy Society, and Trustee of Madison Historical Society.
