A Welcome Message from the President
Dear Friends of Genealogy:
Welcome to the official website of the Charlotte County Genealogical Society, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation serving Charlotte County in Southwest Florida since 1976.
Our mission is to assist and educate our members and our community in their quest for genealogical and historical information.
The Society year 2013 promises to be another exciting year as we continue to partner with the Mid-County Regional Library to fulfill our mutual goals of serving the public and providing assistance to those researching their family history.
The genealogy research room in the library houses a collection of books, family histories, genealogy periodicals, lineage society records, genealogy CDs, and CCGS publications. Two computers, a microfilm/fiche reader, and volunteers are available to assist you.
CCGS offers workshops, help sessions, and classes on genealogical topics. Watch for details on our website, in the local newspapers and flyers in the library.
The Genealogical Society meets monthly (except for July and August) on the third Wednesday. We offer monthly programs, special interest group gatherings, and the opportunity to meet other genealogists. Meeting time and location are posted on the website on the Home page and the Events page. Members receive our monthly newsletter, the Geneagram, which contains genealogical tips and articles, Society events, and member information.
We invite you to join our Society or at least attend one of our meetings as a guest. Please stop by the library and meet our volunteers, sign up for our free classes, visit our website often, and tell your friends about our group.
With sincere regards,
