Information about
Clark County Genealogical Society

Clark County in Washington

We are located in the Clark County that is in Southwest Washington State--not Washington D.C. nor any of the other eleven U.S. Clark Counties nor the five U.S. Clarke Counties (although for a time our name was Clarke County.) We are located in the city of Vancouver, Washington--not Vancouver, Canada--and near Portland, Oregon--not Portland, Maine. Historic Fort Vancouver is located in Clark County and was for a time the western terminus of the Oregon Trail.

CCGS maintains an active schedule of classes, meetings and seminars. We support a genealogical research library, open to the public, specializing in SW Washington, but with world-wide coverage. We publish the Trail Breakers periodical, a society newsletter and compilations of Clark County records. Our volunteers are involved in local cemetery maintenance, researching pioneer stories and indexing vital records.

CCGS is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization
