Welcome to our website!

 
Our purpose is to stimulate a popular interest in family history, to seek genealogical and historical knowledge, to preserve and perpetuate the records of our ancestors, to aid and encourage individual members as well as non-members in compiling their family histories, and to collect and publish genealogical source material. 

Meeting Info
TPCGS monthly meetings are held the second Tuesday of each month, September through June. During COVID or inclement weather, meetings are held virtually utilizing the Zoom platform. The membership meetings are now in person as well; the location for each meeting will be on the website, and included in the email invitations that are sent to members before the meetings. The Meetings begin at 6:15 pm with a brief business meeting. Then the main presentation starts at 6:30.  
Guests are always welcome! 

 
This year's Virtual Spring Seminar is now over.
Our Speakers, Cyndi Ingle & Cari Taplin, did an excellent job.
Now it it time to prepare for the future.
If you have any ideas, please send them to seminar@tpcgs.org.
