Genealogy Guild

Olsen, Ed & Matilda

A monthly DCHS Genealogy Guild meeting is available to anyone interested in networking with others who are researching their family genealogy.

The Guild meets on the second Thursday of each month, 5:30 – 7 p.m. at the Douglas County Historical Society Research Library, located in the lower level.  Please use the lower level door at the back of the building.

Members enjoy guest speakers, programs, sharing research ideas, discussing online resources, and other activities to support each other in their genealogy research.

The Genealogy Guild News can be found in the newsletter of the Douglas County Historical Society. Contact DCHS if you have any questions, 320-762-0382
