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.

City Records: New Dimensions in Family History:
Maureen Wlodarczyk, Author

Maureen Wlodarczyk, author of Past-Forward, and Young and Wicked, will share some of her discoveries and resources as she searched out the lives and challenges of her immigrant ancestors and kindred in the late nineteenth century.

A beloved storyteller, Ms. Wlodarczyk is also a columnist and blogger (Past-Forward.com). Canary in a Cage is her third book of true family stories from the nineteenth century. Her latest book, Jersey! Then...Again gathers thirty-six remarkable and quirky stories from the early 1800's through the 1940's.
