Welcome to the Ozarks Genealogical Society!

Founded in 1969, OGS has been the premier resource for genealogical research and learning opportunities for almost fifty years. Our members have access to the full spectrum of assistance such as annual research trips, monthly workshops, a fall conference featuring a nationally known speaker, and so much more.

The OGS library is notable for its collection of regional and county records covering southwest Missouri. You will find volumes of county vital records, county and regional histories, and bound periodicals and newsletters. There are numerous special collections of donated family research files. You can search over 160 indexed OGS publications of probate, census, cemetery and funeral home records from Greene County and surrounding areas. We have completely searchable files of all Greene County cemeteries, over one thousand pedigree charts submitted by members, and over 95 thousand Ozark's obituaries. Most importantly, you will find helpful volunteers to assist you in your searches.

OGS also offers numerous educational opportunities for our members and the general public. Whether it is our day and evening workshops, the informative newsletters or our annual conference, you will find an opportunity to share with and learn from other family researchers.

Please explore our web-site for more about the Ozarks Genealogical Society and the many resources and opportunities available to our members.
