Who are your ancestors?

October 13 - Save the date for the Cottage Grove Genealogical Society’s family history month open house. The Society is hosting a day where residents can come into the Community Center’s Shepard Room, 700 E Gibbs Ave, Cottage Grove and take a deep dive into any visitors' families genealogy.

Tour their research library and global resources. Stay for the live demonstration showing visitors how to research and extract artifacts and documents from their families history through the FamilySearch website. And learn how to browse and navigate through thousands of digitized Oregon Historic Newspaper Archives using keyword searches and more.

Receive free “Genealogy How-to” starter kits, and take a look through displays, learn research tips and methodology. The Society will take time to evaluate an answer about your ancestor who was born before 1950. Pick up and return completed forms to the Cottage Grove Genealogical Society before the event on October 22, 2022.

There will also be over $1000 in genealogical raffle prizes awarded to entrants. Who are your ancestors?  Email: [email protected],org for additional information or call 541-942-9570 or 541-942-9371.
