Welcome to the Sweet Home Genealogical Society!
 
 
Are you curious who your ancestors were?  Are you related to anyone famous?  It's never to late to start researching your family.  We have a very large collection of reference books, obituaries, and our local newspaper dated back to 1947.  
 
Eggen studio, a local photo studio, donated their large collection of negatives and photos to us which we have indexed so it's easy to see if we may have a picture of your relatives!    
 
This is only a few things that we have to offer to our fellow genealogists.  Stop in and our friendly volunteer staff will be happy to assist you to get you started - or better yet, become a member of the SWEET HOME GENEALOGY SOCIETY!
 
  
WORKSHOP
 
We are also excited to announce our quarterly "mini-workshops".  These workshops are about 3-4 hours long covering one or two topics.  Watch our events tab for more details.
 
Workshops are open to all genealogists - you do not have to be a member to attend.
