No January or February 2022 MCGS Meetings

Due to possible winter weather and last minute cancellations, the group decided in our November 2021 meeting to eliminate our January and February 2022 meetings. But mark your calendars for March 1, 2022 where we will kick off MCGS for the year.

If you would like to connect with us at any time, feel free to use the Contact Us page or email us directly at MadisonCountyIAGenealogy@gmail.com.

MCGS December 7 Meeting

The Madison County Genealogical Society will meet on Tuesday, December 7, at 6:30 pm at the Winterset Public Library.  Our meeting will consist of a short business meeting to elect officers and directors for 2022 and then of loooong tales of our 2021 genealogy adventures. This is our “bring a treat to share” meeting. We will provide hot cider, plates, napkins, and utensils.

The slate for 2022 officers will look familiar, since our 2021 officers agreed to serve again: President Ken Callison, Vice President Skip Greenwood, Treasurer Pat Hochstetler, Secretary Linda Smith. We are also looking for three directors that will help make long-term decisions on the direction of the MCGS.

We hope to see you, and a munchie, there!

MCGS November 2 Meeting

The Madison County Genealogical Society will meet on Tuesday, November 2, at 6:30 pm at the Winterset Public Library. 

Our meeting will begin with a short PowerPoint presentation on the History of the Winterset Cemetery.

That will be followed by a short business meeting to discuss the society’s success this year and to start thinking about what to accomplish in 2022.  It’s also time to look ahead for officers – president, vice president, treasurer, and secretary – for 2022. Onward and upward!

No MCGS October Meeting

The Madison County Genealogical Society is not meeting in October. Our next meeting will be Tuesday, November 2, 6:30 pm, at the Winterset Public Library. We hope all those interested in family history will plan to attend then.

We can report that McGinnis, Peru, and St. Charles cemeteries have all been walked this year. The alphabetic name and row-by-row documentation for each is being updated and placed in the Winterset Library’s Genealogy section. Photos of recent gravestones are also being uploaded to iowagravestones.org. Many thanks to our volunteers for their dedication.
