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: 

New Cemetery Book Available!

The Montgomery County Chapter OGS is excited to announce that the remaining cemeteries in German Township, Montgomery County, Ohio have been read and published in our new book -- Volume VIII German Township except Germantown Union Cemetery.  The book is available for $10.00 plus tax.  Shipping and handling fees apply if the book is mailed.  You can use this convenient order form, which also lists other publications that are available.
