Welcome to the Clark County Genealogical Society. The CCGS was founded by Margaretta Zimmerman
and fourteen of her friends in 1972, and is a volunteer run organization dedicated to encourage,
foster, educate, and organize activities related to genealogy. Whether you have Clark County
connections or not, we invite you to join us in exploring your family history.

Request from CCGS President
There are many places CCGS uses to communicate with you, our members, and with the genealogical
community at large. Some of these venues are, seemingly, more effective than others. We are
forming a small focus group of interested members to take a quick look at where and how we
communicate and how well we market ourselves. This will be a short-lived, goal oriented group
with the express goal of determining how we can communicate more effectively. If you have some
experience/expertise in group communication and/or marketing and would be willing to invest a
couple of hours every other week for a total of three meetings please contact
Thanks for your consideration.
