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.      

From the Library

    CCGS recently received a copy of the newly completed family history book,  Slaughenhoupt Family History 2020. The book was donated by the author, Evan Karns  Slaughenhoupt, Jr. It is a hard back book with very nice print, charts and photographs. The book covers a “300 year American” story of 50 ancestors over 9 generations. In addition to the Slaughenhoupt family, other surnames include Yingling, McClure, Fruit, Pollock, Hilliard, Burford, Kern and more.   
The author includes a bit of local history and family stories in discussing his ancestors. There is also a chapter covering his own life. The book is nicely done and is very interesting reading. We are very grateful to the author for his donation to CCGS. Be sure to stop by and look at the book the next time you are in the library.  It is filed on the shelf with the Family Histories.
