Welcome to the MCCOGS Website!

The Montgomery County Chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society website is designed to allow our members to engage with each other as they trace their ancestors, find information to enter in their family trees (RootsMagic, Legacy Family Tree, FamilySearch.org, Ancestry etc.), and discover their family histories. We want to make this site a dynamic experience where members can share with and learn from one another. Here are just a few ways to engage on this site today: 

Shopping Safely Using the Internet

Are you planning to do some shopping this holiday season using the internet? Are you worried about how “safe” it is?  Of course you are! Check out our latest “Blog” entry, “Shopping Safely Online Cyber Monday.” It was written by Wendy Zamora, Editor in-Chief at Malwarebytes Labs. Especially handy are the “10 tips for safe shopping on Cyber Monday.” These tips are valuable any time you are shopping online.
Click on the “Blog” option on our website menu and it will take you to the “Tech Corner” where you will find the article.

Membership Renewal Time Is Here

Our membership year ends December 31, 2019.  We are pleased to announce that this year there are several ways to renew your membership.
Members may now renew online at our new website.  Renewing online is quick and easy.
To Renew Online:   Login to the Members Only section of the website and follow the directions to renew. There are three options for paying:
  1. Pay with a credit card.
  2. Pay with a PayPal account.
  3. Pay with a check. If you choose this option, you will be instructed to "Print Order Form to mail with a check."  Mail to our P.O. Box 1584, Dayton, OH 45401-1584,
No matter which option you choose you will receive a confirmation to your email address.
Exception: Online renewal will only allow a current member to renew the same membership plan they currently have. If a member wants to make a change in their membership plan, they must use the Membership Application Form below.  Examples of a change in plan would be changing from an individual membership to a family membership or changing from a mailed paper newsletter to just the digital newsletter via email, or vice versa.
Members may renew by using the Membership Application Form.  Click and print Membership Application & Renewal Form below. Complete the form and either mail it along with a check to the Chapter’s P.O. Box give it to Kathy Murray, Membership chair, at our November or December meeting.
PLEASE NOTE: Do not try to renew your membership by clicking on Online Join. Online Join is only for new members.
If you have questions about renewing your membership, we will be conducting a "bonus session" following the regular November meeting to show how simple it is to renew online.
