Union County Genealogical Society

Welcome...

to the new Union County Genealogical Society website, a work in progress.  Check back with us often as new information will be added by our volunteers.
 
The Union County Genealogical Society is dedicated to meeting the educational needs of their members through the preservation of the county's public records, cemetery records, newspapers and family histories for research by future generations.
 
UCGS is a 501(c)3 non-profit and contributions are tax deductible.  Contributions are used to purchase genealogy materials housed at the Matilda Gibson Public Library in Creston, provide additional offerings on our website and assist in providing quality educational genealogy programs.  UCGS is a member of the Iowa Genealogical Society.  
 
Monthly Meetings
UCGS meets on the 4th Monday of each month except December at 6:00 PM in the Genealogy Room at the Matilda Gibson Memorial Library located at 200 West Howard Street in Creston, Iowa. For information on additional educational opportunities in genealogical research, check out our Events page.  
 
First Saturday Workshops
The Union County Genealogical Society has added new educational First Saturday workshops in addition to their monthly meetings in 2018.  The workshops are held on the First Saturday of each month from Noon to 3:00 pm at the Gibson Memorial Library in Creston. They will include an hour presentation by a speaker experienced in genealogy or history followed by time for questions, research and help available by voluteers from the Society.  Workshops are open to the public with cost for members set at $5.00 and $10.00 for non-members which can be paid on-line or at the door.  Pre-registration is requested for planning purposes.   For more information on the program and the speaker, click on View Full Listing under Mar 3 in the column to the right.
