About CCGS

The Clermont County Genealogical Society was organized on September 30, 1977. It is a non-profit, educational organization, supervised by an elected Board of Trustees. Its purposes are to create interest in the genealogy and local history of the area and to collect, preserve and share such information. The Society is a chapter of The Ohio Genealogical Society and and a member of the Federation of Genealogical Societies. Meetings are held the first Saturday of the month in the Doris Wood Memorial Batavia Library, 180 S. 3rd Street, Batavia, at 1:00 pm.  Programs are of a genealogical or historical nature and the public is invited to attend all meetings.
Anyone with an interest in genealogy or local history is welcome to join using our membership form.  New members joining after September will be credited with the following year of membership.  Contributions are welcome from anyone.  Included in your dues is the quarterly Newsletter published by the Society. It contains such things as cemetery records, interesting genealogical finds, queries, new books available at the Library, etc. Members are urged to contribute material.
Members are requested to submit ancestor charts (five generations, if possible), and to contribute as much genealogical material (family group sheets, Bible records, obituaries, etc.) as possible. These are filed to share with those searching the same lines. Contributions of prepared family books or pamphlets are appreciated and are filed in like manner.  The Society also maintains a sumame file of "who is hunting whom" and promotes genealogical projects such as indexing and printing early court records, maintaining an obituary file etc.
If you find these web pages to be informative, please consider becoming a member of the Clermont County Genealogical Society. Your participation is important to further the work of the Society.
