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.

EGS Meeting and Program for January 20, 2020: "So...I've Got All This Genealogy Stuff...Now What Do I Do With It?"

Please join us to hear speaker, Glenn R. Clure, SR., EGS Member, who will discuss ways to handle your genealogy information and artifacts.

Hit-or-miss, disorganized, haphazard - do any of these words describe the way you handle your genealogy information and artifacts? EGS speaker, Glenn R. Clure, Sr., will discuss ways to organize these materials. Mr. Clure will cover how he has taken control of stacks and stacks of retrieved information and ways he's displayed heirlooms in and outside his home. He'll explain how to catalog, preserve, and share this information with others. By controlling your archives, you can readily retrieve needed information and keep from covering the same research path again and again.

The 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.

Our speaker, Mr. Clure has varied interests in genealogy and family history, geology, astronomy, paleontology, histories of the Civil War, WWI and WWII with physical hobbies of stained glass, woodworking, camping and gardening. He has very deep roots in Oklahoma, tracing family members back before statehood. He is a member of the OHCE Genealogy Group, Oklahoma Genealogical Society, OGS Computer Special Interest Group, Edmond Genealogical Society, and the Oklahoma City Astronomy Club.

You won't want to miss this very interesting speaker and topic!

Guests are always welcome to attend. Free genealogy assistance from EGS members is available for those who come early (5:30p.m.) to the meeting.

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, February 17, 2020, will feature Helen Lehman, who will present "Migration Trails".
