About Us

Downriver Genealogical Society

In the fall of 1979, an eight-session genealogy workshop was held. The persons attending the workshop desired to keep the initiative alive and met for the first time in January 1980 with fourteen people in attendance. The Downriver Genealogical Society became a reality. Within 10 short years our Society hosted the statewide Michigan Genealogical Council 3 day Seminar.

The Downriver Genealogical Society has built a large genealogical library that is beneficial to members and to all persons seeking their heritage. Our society has numerous publications that are sold at our meetings, at our library and by mail. To see the list of publications please refer to our publications page.

We welcome you to join and share the fun and excitement of your interest with other members of the Downriver Genealogical Society.
