Historical and Genealogical Society began in 1966 when
concerned citizens of the community recognized the need for a genealogical
organization to collect, preserve and disseminate genealogical and related
historical data, with special emphasis on the preservation of Sedgwick County
history and heritage. The society is conducted as a non-profit
educational organization under Internal Revenue Code, Section 501 (c) (3),
operating as a corporation,
with current bylaws and standing rules.
MHGS is a non profit organization with no ethnic, age
or racial restrictions.
and Genealogical Society library is open most Tuesdays and most Saturdays from
9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. (check the
calendar for closings). The library is
operated by an all volunteer staff. If you have a few
hours a month that you could volunteer please contact
us and we will match your skills and talents to our needs. Because our
staff is limited when requesting copies of any of our material please
allow four weeks for MHGS to receive and process your request.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!
We've signed up with AmazonSmile. AmazonSmile is a website operated by
Amazon that lets customers enjoy the same wide selection of products, low
prices, and convenient shopping features as on Amazon.com. The difference is
that when customers shop on AmazonSmile (smile.amazon.com),
the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases
to the charitable organizations selected by customers.
To help MHGS, first go to
http://smile.amazon.com/ch/48-6128821 to direct your support to MHGS.
Then, remember to use the smile.amazon.com site each time you shop at Amazon.com.
Participating in this program does not change the prices you pay, but it will
help MHGS raise some much needed funds. Thank you!
