Northern Waters Genealogical Society

The Northern Waters Genealogical Society is a diverse group of people interested in their family history, those just beginning genealogy research and more experienced family historians.  It meets monthly for a brief business meeting followed by a genealogical program designed to help members and guests research family records and document their family histories.

Meetings are held the first Tuesday of each month from 2:00 - 4:00 pm (October through March) and from 6:00 - 8:00 pm (April through September).  Meetings are primarily held at the Boulder Junction Community Center and Zoom.
