About Us:

The Kane County Genealogical Society (KCGS) is a non-profit, volunteer organization working to gather and preserve regional historical records and serve as an educational resource for those interested in genealogy.


During the summer of 1977 the Kane County Genealogical Society was organized from a small group. Since that time, the society has grown into a preeminent resource for those conducting historical and family research in Kane County, Illinois.


As part of our commitment to improving the accessibility of records to the researcher, KCGS has been involved in a number of county focused projects:

Resulting from these efforts, KCGS has prepared numerous publications and microfilms covering these subjects, including:


Unique to KCGS is the Master Every Name Index, a database produced from the work of members and friends of the society indexing private and public records. This database, currently comprised of approximately 800,000 individual names from 184 resources, is accessible by paid query only.


To enhance the preservation of Kane County records and the promotion of services for both the Geneva and family historian both the Geneva History Center Museum Director and Board President, approached the KCGS in late 1995 with the intent that the two organizations work under the same roof to serve local and family historians. Together, these two organizations have worked diligently to provide a permanent location for the offices of the Kane County Genealogical Society. The office and society library, which opened to the public in June 2004, contains many of the resources identified within the Master Every Name Index. The KCGS office is located on the lower level of the Geneva History Museum, 113 S. Third Street, Geneva, IL. Current office hours are 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m Thursday and Saturday by appointment.

The mailing address for KCGS is P.O. Box 504, Geneva, IL 60134.
