The Society was formed in 1995 with the mission to collect and preserve family records, histories and other documents pertinent to the study and preservation of genealogical information. Meetings are held on the second Tuesday of each month at 1:30pm, March through December.
Volunteers staff the MCHS building on Tuesday mornings (March thru mid-December, weather permitting) from 9:00 am until Noon. They are available to assist visitors with research. There is a charge for copies and/or a donation is requested.
Inquiries regarding library holdings may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
or mailed to 112 W. Second Street.
Volunteers will respond to your queries, the most common of which involves looking up obituaries in the extensive collection of newspaper clippings. Other resources include family books, school yearbooks, church records, community files, local history books and personal scrapbooks.
Efforts to inventory, index and digitize the records are on-going and volunteers are welcome!
