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.      


Research Thursdays
Research Thursdays are scheduled from 1-4 pm.  Please contact us at to schedule a time if you require CCGS Staff assistance.  We ask that if you are not feeling well, please visit us on another day.  Thank you and we hope to see you soon in the library.   
Volunteer Opportunities
You have time in your schedule and you would like to volunteer at the local genealogical society.  The Carroll County Genealogical Society is looking for you!  We have opportunities for you to lend your genealogy expertise to help others.  As the Society continues to engage with the community, we are scheduling more events we could use an extra hand or two for a couple of hours. 
Interested? Drop us an email at and let us know how you would like to help.
