Our next monthly meeting will be Saturday, November 8, 2014 at the Dayton Metro Library, downtown Dayton, 1:00 p.m. See details below under Upcoming Programs.

Our chapter was formed in 1974 to create and promote interest in collecting, indexing, preserving and publishing material on Montgomery County, and to assist individuals in tracing their ancestry and in compiling family and local histories by means of lectures, educational classes, and the Chapter's Family Tree newsletter.

Regular chapter meetings are held the 2nd Saturday of each month at 1 p.m. in the auditorium of the Dayton Metro Library, 215 East 3rd Street, Dayton, Ohio 45402.

Holiday Carry-in and Genealogy Show & Tell

We would like to invite everyone to join us on December 14 at 1 p.m. for our annual carry-in luncheon and Show & Tell. Bring your favorite holiday treat, sweet or savory, finger foods, to enjoy with your genealogy friends. If you have something genealogical to share, please bring it also. We will have tables on the stage for display purposes. You might want to share a family history project you have been working on, a family heirloom, a book you have written, or a book you have found very helpful in your research. This will be a time to share our ideas, share our love of family history, and share the holiday spirit.

Happy Holidays from the Board of the Montgomery County Chapter OGS!
