Cloud County Genealogical Society
Originally organized as the Republican Valley Genealogical Society in 1977, the current name was adopted in 1980 to lessen confusion with the Republic County Genealogical Society.
The purpose of the society is to: 1) Further the individual research of our members; 2) Preserve for posterity those documents, interviews, records, etc., of local interest; 3) Make available to members and others the largest possible accumulation of genealogical and historical data; 4) Further interest in local history and genealogy; 5) Encourage accuracy, honesty, thoroughness and integrity in all matters of interest to the serious genealogist.
Monthly meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month (except December) at the Cloud County Courthouse meeting room, 9th and Washington, Concordia. New members and visitors are welcome at these meetings. Winter hours are 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Summer hours are 7:30 pm to 9:30 pm.
The Frank Carlson Library, 702 Broadway, Concordia, is the home of the Society's large collection of genealogical books and material about the area. In addition to books, the group has microfilm copies of area census and area newspapers. These are open to anyone wishing to do his/her own research. The Library is conveniently located near downtown, the county courthouse, and the Cloud County Historical Society Museum.
Membership fees are $5 for individuals and $6 for families. A lifetime membership is also available for $100. Volunteers from the group do research for $5 per hour plus copies and postage. EMAIL US
