Ingham County Genealogical Society

What's New

Due to COVID restrictions the Annual December Holiday Potluck dinner usually scheduled as our December get together has been cancelled by action of the membership. Since we do not meet in January, our next membership meeting will be February 11, 2021.  
The ICGS Reference Room collection will be temporarily stored in an 8 ft x 16 ft climate controlled trailer specifically designed to allow the books, etc. to be shelved and easily retrieved by researchers.  Keep checking this website's  President's Blog  for the latest information.
As with any move once we started packing, we realized there were some things that were no longer needed by the Society and some books that were donated but do not directly relate to Ingham County.  Given the limited space we will be moving into, the Society is offering these items - first come, first get.  A donation is asked in lieu of a specific dollar amount for each item.  A list of these items can be found under the "Genealogy in the News" tab.
VOLUNTEER!  Now more than ever, with the move from CADL-Mason and the need to get as much of our resource information on line as we can to assist researchers, we need volunteers.  ICGS has no paid staff. If you would like to become more active in our society, and contribute to making our resources available on line, consider volunteering. Contact Audrey Martini for more information.
MONTHLY MEETINGS CONTINUE:  All are welcome to attend our monthly meetings held the second Thursday of the month (except January, June, and July) from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.  With events surrounding the pandemic, until further notice our future meetings will be held online. For information on how to access the online meeting contact Audrey Martini.  We use ZOOM which allows access via computer, or your telephone.  Members will receive an email with the url link and meeting ID prior to each meeting, or contact any member of the Board.  
MEMBER ACCESS:  Members must login to access their membership profile, contribute to the Surname list, access archived information and search our members-only information.  Forget your password?  Contact our webmaster.
NON-MEMBER ACCESS: Non-members also benefit from the ICGS public databases, Index Files, and the Library card catalog.  Become a member today to access even more files - for as low as $15.
