You do not need to be researching ancestors in Story County, Iowa, to join SCGS.  Most of our members do not have local ancestors!  We're a group of people who enjoy genealogy, the thrill of the ancestral chase, learning new ways of researching, and sharing our discoveries with kindred genealogists.  We are a blend of beginners, intermediate, and seasoned researchers.  We love to "talk genealogy" and may be able to assist you in your research.  Come join us.  Our meetings are open to the public and guests are welcome.
