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.

Society News…

Please join us at the Grange Fair for Family Heritage Afternoon on Sunday, August 20, 2017! Check back for event details!

The Index to the CCGS Cemetery Series is now online and free to the public!

Members, we have the last 10 years of Roots newsletters along with additional information from programs and newsletter articles available in our Members-Only section of the website.

Members, the Society welcomes contributions for the newsletter from our members: interesting historic newspaper items, articles about families, summaries of research finds, etc. Please contact our newsletter editor, Bob Wilkins, if you have something you would like to submit.

The Society is seeking a responsible volunteer to act as Facebook Administrator, posting information and photos regarding events and items of interest, and responding as “the Society” to the public. Ideally, this person should be able to attend Society events in Centre County, to document them visually.

This position is available immediately or as soon as a volunteer is found. Lisa Kerns can help with the transition, as she moves out of this role and you move in! If you are comfortable using Facebook and willing to post once or twice a week on behalf of the Society and watch for inquiries that need a response, or wish to know more about this position, please write to Lisa at webmaster@centrecountygenealogy.org and/or Richard Wade at president@centrecountygenealogy.org.
