Save the date for Mark Lowe!
Mark Lowe has agreed to be the speaker for our fall conference! He will present four sessions on 25 September 2021. Because of unknown covid conditions, it was decided that it would be better not to contract with a conference site and instead hold the conference virtually through Zoom. However, a hybrid solution is planned. There will be room for some people to attend the conference at the OGS library. We will use a computer to project Mark’s sessions onto a screen. We hope to accommodate those who are not comfortable using the virtual conference setting. Save the date and look for details to come.
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 105 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.
