OGS hosts several different types of events. Click on any of the links below to learn more about each type of event and the schedules for each:
- General Membership Meetings -- OGS members normally meet the 2nd Thursday of the month, September through June, at 7:00 pm. Meetings are held at the Thurston County Courthouse, 2000 Lakeridge Dr SW (Olympia), Bldg 1, Room 152, unless noted otherwise. Non-member guests are welcome.
- Drop-In Genealogy Help -- Are you wondering how to get started? Or if you've started, are you now wondering where to go next? Come to one of our DIG Help sessions; OGS members will be on hand to help you. These free informal sessions typically are offered twice a month on the 3rd Thursday and the 3rd Saturday from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm at the Olympia Timberland Library.
- Spring Seminar - This is OGS's premier event featuring one or more distinguished speakers for a full-day paid seminar. Registration in advance is required. This event has been held annually for many years (except 2006 and 2001).
- Beginners Workshop - This is a free beginning genealogy research class typically offered once a year. The class includes steps for research, places to gather information, and ways to document your family history.
We look forward to seeing you at our events. If you need a ride to any of these events, please reach out to another member.
