The Story County Genealogy Society will hold its first meeting of 2018 on Monday, Jan. 8, at 6:30 p.m. at the Ames Public Library. Members of the Story County Genealogical Society will be on hand to assist people with their genealogy research. Come share your interest in genealogy. Our members are a society of searchers and researchers who love to talk genealogy and want to get to know you. We all learn from each other. Feel free to bring a pedigree chart and/or surnames who are the focus of your family history to share. You might find a cousin! Bring a friend. Our meetings are free and open to the public.
