Why should I join the Peoria County Genealogical Society?


1) You'll be helping the Society to preserve the history and heritage of our Peoria County ancestors.


2) You'll receive a 10 % discount on non-sale Society publications.


3) You'll enjoy a subscription to "Prairie Roots", a publication jammed packed with stories, transcribed original records, queries, and much more.  Each issue has a surname index for easy searching for your ancestors.  Check our cumulative index for an idea of the valuable articles and information in this publication. 


4) You'll receive a subscription to the PCGS News, at least nine issues annually, containing articles, news on upcoming events, and member queries.


5) You can connect with others who share your research interests - place a free surname query in both the PCGS News and Prairie Roots!


6) You can attend informative meetings, where you'll learn new genealogy skills, hear of topics of historical interest, and meet new friends! Meetings are held at the Peoria Public Library, North Branch, 3001 W. Grand Parkway, Peoria, IL.


7) You'll have the chance to get involved with something that has lasting genealogical value, not only for the present, but for future generations.  Make a difference!


8) And most of all, supporting the Peoria County Genealogical Society ultimately helps you, the researcher, by making new publications and information available, oftentimes information that is not easily obtained elsewhere.
