Hail, Hail to a Grand Year of Genealogy

On Tuesday, December 3, the MCGS held their annual Christmas Party.  We shared a treat or two, made plans for the coming year, and discussedour best genealogy story of the year.  A great time was had by all.


UPDATE – November 5

UPDATE – Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Madison County Genealogical Society meeting will be held at the Winterset Public Library rather than at the Madison County Annex. Tonight, there will NOT be a program, but only a meeting. Look for a tour of the Recorder’s Office to be a program in 2020.

November 6 – Finding Farmland History

The family farm represents the traditions and heritage upon which our families and the state were built. Jared McDonald will present resources to gather farmland history, using online sources to view historic maps and photos.

October 2 – Heritage and Century Farms

The Heritage and Century Farm Programs, administered by the State Secretary of Agriculture and the Iowa Farm Bureau Foundation, honor those families that have owned farmland for 150 and 100 years, respectively. Members will explain the significance of the programs and the simple steps to honor your farming legacy.
