The Champaign County Genealogical Society has been active since 1969, and even though we’ve gone through many changes over the years, our mission has always been the same
  • to promote genealogical and historical research;
  • to aid in the publication and preservation of genealogical and historical records and manuscripts; and
  • to provide programs designed to assist both the beginning and the advanced genealogist.
For this meeting we will take you through our website in real-time to uncover some of the treasures that members have access to and may not even realize it. We will discuss how the society may be able to benefit your research and get feedback on what members (and potential members) would like to see from the society in the future.  Come join us for this information (and fun) meeting.
