Welcome to the website of the Centre County Genealogical Society, a dedicated group of genealogists with a Centre County, Pennsylvania connection. A non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, the society strives to serve its members and the public through informative meetings and workshops, a quarterly newsletter, and the publication of various types of county records. All meetings are free and open to the public and are held September to June, usually on the first Thursday of the month. Special events such as our Annual Family Heritage Afternoon at the Grange Fair and genealogy workshops are held throughout the year.
