The Northern Waters Genealogical Society provides support and education for those interested in getting started with their personal genealogy, and to assist more experienced people in their research.  We have a different topic each month, based on input from members indicating their areas of interest. Speakers are made up of individual members, members from neighboring genealogical groups, and from other parts of the State.


We are located in North Central Wisconsin on the Wisconsin/Michigan state border, serving residents of NW Vilas County Wisconsin, SE Iron County Wisconsin, and S. Central Gogebic County Michigan*.  See the map of our meeting locations below.

The Northern Waters Genealogical Society is affiliated with the Wisconsin State Genealogical Society.


Please note:  Gogebic Range Genealogical Society in Bessemer, Michigan, (the county just north of us), provides OBITUARIES from current local newspapers and older ones back to the early 1900's, at only two dollars each.    They are only an hour's drive away from us.  You might find and order your family obituaries using their website at
