Let's get Genealogical

Our objective is to instruct members in research through monthly educational meetings, to created an interest in genealogical and historical material, and to publish genealogical and historical records.

We meet the third Thursday of the month at the Yamhill County Historical Society in Lafayette, Oregon, 6th & Market Street (no meeting in July or August). Meetings start at 12:30 with social time.  The program starts at 1:00 followed by a short business meeting. Visitors are welcome!

Open to All

Membership is open to anyone with an interest in genealogy and history, whether you're a beginner or more advanced. Admission to our library is free.
