St. Marys County Genealogical Society


What an exciting time to be doing genealogy and family history! New books, articles and websites are popping up everyday and it is hard to keep up with all the advances in research, ideas and techniques. 
The membership in our society is a wonderful combination of  experienced researchers, as well as new members just beginning their “hunt”!
Our monthly meetings begin with an outstanding guest speaker. These persons present on topics related to many areas of genealogy. Plus, there are desserts always available, so no one goes home hungry!
We plan on adding several new additions to our meetings this year.  Our members will be sharing their areas of research, for example, state, county and surnames.  Many of our members may have common interests and do not even realize it! There will also be the addition of  mini-lessons on new terms and techniques in the field of genealogy. As you can see, we are a society that encourages continued learning and sharing of knowledge among our membership.
We look forward to seeing you in September, as we resume our monthly meetings.   We will be sharing “What I Found on my Summer Vacation”!
Hope to see you then,
Karen Bishop Wood, President
