About the Clark County Genealogical Society

Welcome to Clark County Genealogical Society, located in Clark County, Washington.  Since 1972, CCGS has been dedicated to the collection and publication of the heritage of Clark County.  CCGS also offers assistance to genealogical researchers and family historians.

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.
