Society Goals:
  1. To promote the study of genealogy and history, geography, and social customs of our ancestors;
  2. To collect, preserve and disseminate this information, especially to that of local origin;
  3. To encourage adherence to the highest standards of research and documentation;
  4. To offer educational programs such as lectures, seminars, workshops, and special interest groups.
  5. To promote the observance of Family History Month in October both locally and nationally.

Society History:

Our society has a long and interesting history.  Please read  Monmouth County Genealogy Society: The First Twenty Years(1998-2008)  which was written by Carol Fisher Megill for our 20th Anniversary Party in July 2008.
