INTEREST GROUPS

Several interest groups have formed to focus on unique genealogical interests or problems in a specialized research area or ethnicity.

All Interest Groups are directly affiliated with the Minnesota Genealogy Society. Therefore, regular attendance to Interest Group meetings requires membership in the Minnesota Genealogical Society. You may certainly attend up to two meetings without being a member to see if the group is of interest to you. You can learn more about the MGS Interest Groups here.

All changes and updates to the following information should be sent to the webmaster@mngs.org
