Douglas County Genealogy Guild
The Douglas County Genealogy Guild was established in July 2004, by a small group of people with an interest in the finding and preservation of their family's history for the future. Our Guild is under the auspices of the Douglas County Historical Society at 1219 Nokomis Street, Alexandria Minnesota 56308.
Our meetings are held the second Thursday of each month at 5:30 - 7:30 P.M. in the lower level of the Historical Society. Some of our programs have included guest speakers, how-to's on the computer, ethnic events, overview of resources available, research nights, a trip to the Swedish Institute and other Historical Societies, etc.
