Ingham County Genealogical Society

What's New

CLOSED:  The Capital Area District Libraries, including the Mason Branch, are open for curbside pickup only.  The Ingham County Genealogical Society's Resource Room will continue to be unavailable until further notice.
UPDATE ON STATUS OF THE ICGS RESOURCE ROOM; The CADL-Mason branch will soon be remodeling the building at 145 West Ash Street.  The remodeling will be quite extensive.  ICGS will be moving its resource room collection to an alternate location to make way for the remodeling and will not be returning to the West Ash Street location.  Volunteers will be adding information to our webpage in various areas to assist researchers in locating information that is available.  At least until after the pandemic  there will be no outside access to the holdings.  We will provide more information as it becomes available. 
In the meantime check this website's  President's Blog  for the latest information on status of the ICGS Reference/Resource Room move.
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.
