About Us

The Guilford County Genealogical Society, founded in 1974, is a non-profit organization of about 160 members nationwide, dedicated to genealogy and family history research, education and publication.  GCGS promotes interest in genealogy and standards of genealogical research through its educational programs and publications. GCGS also promotes the collection and preservation of family records, manuscripts, documents and other genealogy materials.  Many of GCGS's programs are of general interest to anyone interested in genealogy while focus on preserving  Guilford County genealogy.

We believe people working together in genealogical and historical societies have been invaluable preserving our ancestors' family history through research and training.

Our Mission

Preserve Guilford's genealogical records for the use of our members and researchers.


Our Vision
