The Wake County Genealogical Society (WCGS) was organized in April of 1982 to promote genealogical study and research; serve as a medium for the exchange of genealogical or historical information; encourage the preservation of genealogical or historical records; and provide cultural, educational, and social opportunities involving genealogy. In 1983, WCGS was incorporated as a nonprofit organization under the laws of the State of North Carolina.
WCGS meets the fourth Tuesday of each month year round except the November and December meetings are combined and occur the first Tuesday in December to avoid conflicting with the holidays.
WCGS general meetings and SIGs are held virtually via Zoom. We also host quarterly "Meetups" around Wake County to give us an opportunity for face to face fellowship and discussion.
For upcoming meeting information please visit the WCGS Events
page. WCGS members receive customized notifications of meetings and upcoming events via email.
