Welcome 

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.

Genetic Genealogy: Bob Stein, Genealogist
On TV shows like Who Do You Think You Are?,  Genealogy Road Show and Finding Your Roots with Henry Lewis Gates Jr., we watch people solve mysteries in their ancestry by using DNA.  Every day Law Enforcement organizations use DNA to identify criminals.  But what exactly is DNA and what kinds of questions can it answer about us and our ancestors?  Is there more than one type of DNA test and if so, which one should I use?  Will I have to give a blood sample or tear out hair samples for the test? 

Find out the answers to these questions and many more from Bob Stein, a genealogist with over fifteen years experience lecturing on TV and to genealogy societies.


Below are links to topics of interest.
