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.

Membership Renewal Time Is Here

Our membership year ends December 31, 2020.  We are pleased to announce that this year there are several ways to renew your membership.
Members may renew online at 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,

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 & Renewal 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.
