Genealogy Club of the Montgomery County Historical Society



The Genealogy Club is organized to promote interest and proficiency in genealogical research and to make available records of interest to genealogists. While some programs discuss records for a specific area, the main focus of the club is to help researchers develop skills and become aware of sources that can be used wherever their ancestors lived.

Genealogy Club membership is available as a free benefit to all MCHS members. Membership benefits include:
  • Regular monthly meetings, September through June, with informative speakers
  • First notice of all genealogy classes sponsored by MCHS
  • Assistance with research questions pertaining to genealogy and other historical topics

Join a knowledgeable and interested group of people dedicated to researching their family histories!
