The West Florida Genealogical Society, ia a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Since our founding in 1982, our society has become the largest genealogical society in Northwest Florida.
Per our By-Laws, our purpose is “to promote and stimulate knowledge and interest in the study of genealogy; to provide for exchange of information among members; and to provide educational programs and workshops that will assist our members in their genealogical research.”
To that end, we provide:
Monthly meetings for the general membership
An annual all-day seminar featuring a nationally known speaker
Workshops, and Special Interest Groups which focus on a particular aspect of genealogy
We offer assistance to others in advancing their genealogical education and we continue to pursue additional educational avenues as well. Also, our monthly newsletter provides our members with news and events of the Society and other articles and information of interest.
Our efforts to provide for our members have also had the added effect of serving the community at large. We have donated funds to local libraries for the purchase of books, materials, and equipment for the purpose of genealogical research.
