We are the Gallia County Genealogical Society, OGS Chapter, Inc, celebrating the history of The Lewis and Clark Trail and other cultural-heritage events along the Ohio River The general public is welcome to attend but only members have voting privileges at the Annual Meeting and only board members have voting privileges at the monthly meetings. Participation is welcomed for all who attend.
Members are encouraged to participate at all meetings and are also welcomed as volunteers at the office. There is much going on at the society on a daily basis and people are needed to input data into a computer, to index probate records, to help those who stop in to research, to copy records, and see that family history or other notebooks are kept current with received material, and to create photo albums or scrapbooks.
We generally hold several events during the year, such as book signings for local authors, (and we also have their books for sale–see Publications). These events will appear on the calendar when they are scheduled. Please stop by our office and observe what we are doing. Our main goal is to help researchers and to preserve the records of Gallia County by copying or transcribing and compiling whatever is necessary.
