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!

Legacy Family Tree Webinars: https://familytreewebinars.com/
The aboslute best genealogy bargain out there! Almost every webinar is free to watch for the first week (and some remain free); but members get the added benefit of access to the syllabus materials. And right now, it is their annual Webtember, with fiver webinars every Friday.

I am the family face; 
Flesh perishes, I live on, 
Projecting trait and trace 
Through time to times anon, 
And leaping from place to place 
Over oblivion. 
The years-heired feature that can 
In curve and voice and eye 
Despise the human span 
Ofdurance--that is I; 
The eternal thing in man, 
That heeds no call to die. 
by Thomas Hardy
