The Edmond Genealogical Society (EGS) was established in September, 1991, with 78 charter members by December 31, 1991. We meet monthly at the LDS Church in Edmond , OK.
Our purpose, as stated in the EGS Constitution, adopted in December, 1991:
- Bring together interested persons for discussion in the field of genealogy
- To study methods of research
- To assist its members in their genealogical research and compilations, particularly beginners in the field
- To issue publications when deemed beneficial to the membership
- To collect and preserve genealogical material and historical data
- To work and cooperate with other genealogical departments, societies, and libraries in the state
- To provide assistance for genealogical and historical research for the Edmond Historical Society patrons and museum staff
We are here to encourage the science of genealogy; to help others gather genealogical information; and to preserve, protect and publish information of importance. We are here to serve visitors as well as our members.
