Find Your Family History with OGS

Tracing your roots is fascinating and rewarding — and tricky sometimes. The Ohio Genealogical Society makes it easier and more fun! Local chapters throughout the state host regular meetings that cover the how-tos in a casual group setting. Annual state conferences, summer workshops, boot camp for beginners — all offer assistance for beginners and even experienced family history researchers. Online databases and educational resources help members find ancestors in Ohio and beyond. Publications target Ohio research and history.
