Greer County Genealogical and Historical Society
MEETINGS: We meet on the third Tuesday of each month September through May at 4:00 p.m. in the Margaret Carder Library, 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 or Janell Adams for research options.

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

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.
