Membership Information

Here at Kenosha County Genealogy Society, we see the value in everyone. We want to be a catalyst for positive change, and since our beginnings in 1972, we’ve been driven by the same ideas we initially founded our Non-Profit Organization upon: support, empowerment, and progress. Learn more about our mission, our vision, and how we go about making the changes we want to see by becoming a member.

Membership in the Kenosha County Genealogy (KCGS) is open to any person(s) or organization who is interested in genealogy. You can join others that have an interest in genealogy and history by gaining access to resources and knowledge that can make your membership pay for itself. Membership is without restriction to place of residence.

    Published monthly, members can print an electronic version of the newsletter from the Members Only site.
