Welcome To The CCGS Website!

  The Carroll County Genealogical Society President and Board would like to welcome the many researchers to our website that was created for you, our members and the public in pursuit of genealogical research.  Our informational offerings are rich and we continue to grow our digital content.  As we work to improve the historical records offered at our site we hope that you would join us if you are not a current member.  Enjoy the site, explore and research. Genealogical research is rewarding and we hope that you find your experience with us positive and will return often in your research.      

June Membership Meeting

  At our June membership meeting in accordance with CCGS By-Laws nominations were held for the position of President and Vice President.  There were nominees for each position,  and it is my pleasure to announce that Diane Boettcher was nominated as President and Heather Owings was nominated as Vice President from the floor by Mimi Ashcraft.  Their nominations were seconded from the floor and then unanimously approved by voice vote of all members in attendance. Eileen Mummaugh administered the oath of office to each.  Congratulations to our new President Diane Boettcher and our Vice President Heather Owings.
