Stay Safe This Winter!


Our monthly meetings are the third Monday of every month — we’re looking forward to staying cozy by the Zoom fire with all of you while learning from fantastic local presenters!

    • Winter meetings (January & February) will be held virtually via Zoom.  
    • We are bringing fantastic local presenters to your screen who will bring top research tips and interesting information!


We look forward to seeing you at the Plymouth District Library – 223 S. Main St., Plymouth, MI 48170 – for our Spring meetings (March, April, May) pending a room reservation confirmation in January from the library.

IMPORTANT NOTE for members planning to renew your membership at the meeting: Due to the rules and regulations of Plymouth District Library no money can change hands at library events so we cannot accept payment in person.  Please renew your membership online or through the mail.


Our Family Tree Maker SIG meets the 2nd Monday of the month.
