western wayne county genealogical society


We love genealogy here at WWCGS -- JOIN US on your family history journey!

We explore various methods of tracing ancestry and promote education for both beginners and more experienced genealogists through monthly workshops + webinars addressing various topics of interest. Any person who is interested in pursuing their family history is welcome to join WWCGS or may attend meetings as a visitor. Members of WWCGS gain access to our members only area that includes our monthly newsletter, past + present meeting handouts on a variety of genealogy topics, access to previous monthly webinars, research assistance, networking with other genealogists as well as information on all events and field trips hosted by WWCGS.
