MEETINGS: Usually on the third Tuesday of each month September through May at 4:30 p.m. at the Old Greer County Museum and Hall of Fame, Mangum, Oklahoma.

HISTORY & GOALS: Our group organized September 21, 1989 to preserve all types of early records; encourage genealogical and historical research; purchase genealogical, historical books and microfilm for our group collection held at the Margaret Carder Library; compile quarterly issues of the GREER FRONTIER each year for the subscribing members.

Research fee is $7.50 to $10.00 per hour depending on amount of research needed. Prints by microfilm reader/printer are 50 cents per page. There is a collection of original marriage records from court clerk's office, groom and bride indexes. Copies of the originals are $10.00. Call Judy Forehand 782-2249 or Janell Adams 782-2004for research options. The library does not provide research.

MEMBERSHIP dues are $15.00 per calendar year, due January 1. A new member receives all issues of the newsletter for the year.

PUBLICATION: The society publishes four issues of the GREER FRONTIER newsletter per year, March, May, September and December. Each issue contains pages of abstracted or indexed records,  Old Greer County families and the unique history of Old Greer County, organized by Texas in July 1886, by Supreme Court decision of March 16, 1896 assigned to Oklahoma Territory. After statehood Old Greer was divided to counties of Greer, Jackson, Harmon and south part of Beckham. We welcome contributions of genealogical and historical data to be published in the GREER FRONTIER. Books donated to the Society will be reviewed as time and space is available in the newsletter, and placed in our collection at the Margaret Carder Library.

New! November 2006Greer County List of Obituaries 1898-2006 is complete, containing 20,000 names transcribed by volunteers.

In 1993 Greer County volunteers requested records in courthouse archives containing family information (marriage, probate, divorce, etc.) to be microfilmed by Utah Genealogical Society -and- Greer County Genealogical and Historical Society. A few of records were as early as 1886 but the majority were 1901-1930. Copies of the 114 microfilm rolls were placed at Margaret Carder Library, Mangum, Oklahoma in GCG&HS holdings. The library provides a microfilm reader for visiting researchers. Please remember when you write with a request, library staff has limited time for lookups.

The microfilm is in LDS FHC library catalog, Oklahoma, Greer County. Besides the marriage index, probate packets, selected civil (divorce etc) packets, there are Administator records (probate), Bill of Sale records 1886-1899, Civil Appearance Dockets 1896-1932, Commissioner Minute books, Court Journals, Deed Indexes, Election board Precinct Registers, Guardianship records 1902-1929, Naturalization records, School District records. Some of these are unindexed, some are partially indexed, some are in date order, some are not.
