Franklin County
Genealogical Society
WELCOME
If you have visited this website before you will find
we have made some changes. Our website began
in 2006 and since then, many other resources have
come online, thus we are trying to simplify.
ABOUT US
We organized to promote interest in genealogical
and historical study and research and to conduct
such projects that contribute to that end. We are a
subsidiary of the Franklin County Historical Society.
In 2015, we will meet Sunday afternoons; January
18th, March 15th, May 17th, July 19th and Sep-
tember 20th at 1:30 p.m. in the conference room
at the Visitor Center,
2011 East Logan, Ottawa, KS.
Our meetings are open to the public.
A typical
meeting consists of a business meeting and a
speaker on a topic of interest to genealogists.
We
also will meet November 15
th
for a holiday party at
a member home, time & place to be announced.
Membership is open to anyone interested in pro-
moting the goals of the society. Individual dues are
$10.00 a year.
