Our History

Learning how to find their ancestors inspired a group from the northwest suburbs of Cleveland, Ohio to form the Cuyahoga West Genealogical Society in 1976.  On April 30th 1977, Cuyahoga West became the 29th charter as a member chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society and is proud to be part of the OGS success.  Today the group continues to welcome all interested in this fascinating pursuit of family history.
