Welcome to the MCC-OGS 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: 
 

Join Our Newsletter or Program Committee!



We are looking for members interested in assisting with the publication of our monthly newsletter. Some of the tasks you might volunteer to help with are proofreading each issue before it is published looking for spelling or grammar mistakes, helping to write articles, writing book reviews, looking on the internet to find upcoming events by other organizations which we can promote, or finding interesting local history information such as facts or images which can be included.
 
We are also looking for members interested in assisting with the program committee. This committee identifies potential speakers of interest to our group, and gets in touch with them to find out their available topics, fees charged, available dates, contact info, etc. They then coordinate with the information found by others on the committee to establish the calendar for the year of the speaker and the topic for each month. This committee also plans and organizes any field trips which are sponsored by the chapter. Contact us at info@mcc-ogs.org if you are interested!
