Our Society provides a lively forum for resource sharing, mutual assistance, and instruction for those interested in family history and genealogy. Beginners as well as more experienced genealogists profit from monthly lectures on topics relating to genealogy.

Since our origin in 1988 at the Joint Free Public Library of Morristown and Morris Township, our Society has grown and we now meet at the Morris County Library*, 30 East Hanover Ave., Whippany, NJ on the first Tuesday evening of the month. Visitors are welcome at our monthly meetings. Refreshments are served at 6:30; the program begins at 7:00.

If a monthly meeting needs to be cancelled, every effort is made by the MAGS Board to notify the Morris County Library before 3 pm, with a cancellation notification posted on this page of this website. When in doubt, please call the Morris County Library directly.

Among the benefits of membership are a subscription to the quarterly Morris Area Genealogy Society Newsletter and participation in our Special Interest Groups which focus on particular challenges and topics such as research strategies in a smaller, less formal setting.

Members are encouraged to volunteer their time and share their expertise by serving on committees.

*Directions to the Library. Telephone number: 973-285-6930.

Researching Revolutionary War Soldiers: Bob Mayers
Did my ancestor serve in the American Revolution? How do I find him? What did he do in the war? The Revolutionary War lasted for eight long years, from 1775 until 1783. Bob Mayers will answer these questions by exploring existing public and military records of soldiers who served in the Revolutionary War. Learn how to locate your soldier in the National Archives, lineage societies, state and local records and dedicated collections; and then how to follow your soldier’s adventures during the Revolutionary War.

Bob Mayers is a dedicated and proficient genealogist. He is an active member of ten historical and genealogical societies and a frequent speaker and contributor to publications. His new book The Forgotten Revolution depicts battlefields, encampments and sites of many critical events of the American Revolution that have been lost or neglected by history.

Below are links to topics of interest.
