  • informative and entertaining meetings with friendly people of diverse talents and skills, all pursuing the discovery, preservation and illustration of family histories; you will learn and have fun!

  • membership in our private, online LGS Members group with access to the online archive of all issues of our Links newsletter since 1987, LGS photo gallery and other resources

  • register your research interests in our Members' Interests database, published on the Internet for search opportunities and possible discovery of connections

  • enjoy the social reward from helping promote family tree and history research to young and less young alike through a heritage event

  • take advantage of the growth in our Public Library resources from prior and ongoing Society donations
