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.

Next EGS Meeting and Program for October 19, 2020: "My Big Fat Family Secret - Part 2"

Please join us, in person, to hear EGS Board member, Andrea Moon, BS ND MH, who will present her own Greek family secrets and how she used investigative genealogy to find her biological family. Her presentation is called "My Big Fat Family Secret - Part 2". Ms. Moon will review Part 1, the first part of her journey, which she presented to EGS members in 2018.

Andrea will speak about how she used tools: US Census, Familytreedna, Ancestry.com, Familysearch.org, Find a grave, Obituaries and more. You will hear how she contacted her DNA matches and worked with them to find their common ancestors. It was a seven year journey that she will passionately share with you.

The EGS meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Edmond Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (LDS), 1315 East 33rd St., in Edmond.

Guests are always welcome to attend. There will be no genealogy assistance prior to the meeting at this time.

The EGS monthly meeting is free and open to the public, beginning with a social time at 6:00 p.m. The program will start promptly at 6:30 p.m. Enter through the doors at the rear of the LDS Church building. The Church offers plenty of parking and is fully handicapped accessible.

The EGS meets on the third Monday evening of each month, with speakers on subjects of interest to genealogists and historians. Membership is open to anyone interested in historical or genealogical research.

Next month's presentation, on Monday, November 16, 2020, will feature Amy Stephens, Executive Director, Edmond Historical Society & Museum, on "Collecting Covid 19 - How Museums Gather Current History"
