Historical societies are a great resource when you are unable to visit the town of your ancestors. Many societies keep
local records, photos and even information about cemeteries. These directories of historical society listings are
the result of contributions from dozens of volunteers.
Directories of Societies
Attention Society Members
If you are a member (or officer) of a local historical (or genealogical) society, please take a few
minutes to verify your listing in the directory. If your historical or genealogical society is not listed, fill out
the online form.
Announce your upcoming meetings and seminars using the Genealogy Calendar feature at Genealogy Today. To locate
events in your area, access the Genealogy Directory regional pages.
Are you in search of a speaker for your next meeting/workshop/seminar?
If so, visit the Ancestor Detective Speakers Bureau.
And be sure to read Hiring a Speaker for some helpful tips from the Genealogical Speakers Guild.
