Westchester County Genealogical Society (WCGS) was organized in September 1982 in Westchester County, New York to bring together people interested in tracing their ancestry. Here members can study methods of genealogical research and exchange information helpful in their search for family roots. Any person, whether amateur or professional, interested in genealogy or related topics is welcome to join WCGS.

WCGS members range from persons just beginning to organizing their family trees to persons possessing over 20 years of genealogical research experience. Our members have research interests in a majority of the United States as well as many foreign countries.
