The Ontario County Genealogical Society (OCGS) was organized in the autumn of 1975 as the result of strong interest evident during a series of seminars on genealogy presented early in the year by the Ontario County Historical Society and Museum "OCHS".
The purpose of the Ontario County Genealogical Society is to provide educational programs, encourage the exchange of genealogical information, and provide an opportunity for fellowship around this shared interest.
The Ontario County Genealogical Society does not conduct research. Requests for research assistance can be made in the following manner: (1) click on "site links" (2) click on"Ontario County Historical Society. (3) Click on "research center." (4) Print the research request form and mail it to OCHS.
The OCGS in cooperation with the OCHS seeks to assist those conducting research on families in Ontario County, New York, USA. To that end, the OCGS has published the "Directory of Resources in Ontario County", as a basic guide to aid researchers. If you wish to purchase a copy, please click on the e-mail address below.
