Come Visit Our Library

CCGS librarians are genealogists who are ready to help you with your research. If they can’t answer your question, they can show you additional resources. So come on down to the library and make their day!

In addition to the human touch, you can find research computers connected to Ancestry.com, American Ancestors, Family Search with enhanced results, and more. Bring your own laptop if you’d like, and work alongside one of the research computers. We also have over 8,000 books, some of which cannot be found anywhere else, and pedigree charts to help record your research.

Focus Groups and Meetings

Our Focus Groups and monthly General Membership Meetings will be a mix of online and in-person. Please check our Event Calendar for details.
