The Genealogy Group of the Manchester Historical Society ("MHS") consists of MHS members who have an abiding interest in genealogy, as it applies to their own families and to families in Manchester (and, as needs be, in the wider community).
The Group is open to amateurs and experts alike. The only requirement is that those in the Group must be MHS members. Newcomers to the Group are more than welcome to join, and there is no admission fee.
To assist and support members and friends in
• researching their own and others’ family ancestors
• pursuing genealogical learning experiences, including learning from other group members.
We will collect, preserve, interpret, and exhibit family research and artifacts.
