Olympia Genealogical Society

Welcome to Our Website!

The Olympia Genealogical Society’s website is designed to allow our members to engage with each other as they trace their ancestors, fill out their family trees, and discover their family histories. We want to make this site a dynamic experience where members can share with and learn from one another. Here are just a few ways to engage on this site today:
  • Go to the Members Only area and log in.
  • Review your Profile and provide any appropriate revisions to your Contact Info and Member Settings.
  • Under the Surnames tab of your profile, add the names of your ancestors. Your entries automatically will show up in the Surname Research area where visitors to the site can find them and share information they may have.  Users of search engines like Google and Bing also will be able to discover these names.
  • Join a Special Interest Group (SIG).
  • Submit feedback, topic ideas or tips to Webmaster@OlyGenSoc.org.
If you aren’t already an OGS member, please consider joining and engaging with our community. To do so, see Membership in the menu in the left column.
Come back frequently and watch for further enhancements to this site!
