President's Message:

The Rochester Genealogical Society is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to helping our members improve their research skills and broaden their enjoyment of family history. Our regular monthly meetings feature two presentations by experienced genealogists.

Our Computer Interest Group provides internet and computer-related presentations with a heavy dose of problem solving for hardware and software difficulties.

If you are writing your family history – or would like to – our Writers Group can provide support and inspiration.

Our Church Records Preservation Committee is deeply involved in rescuing local area records from oblivion.

Our DNA Interest Group helps members with the ever-evolving use of DNA for genealogical purposes.

Our Educators Committee provides speakers for local groups on request.

Our meetings are open to the public. We invite you to join us.
