Yearly Memberships are for the calendar year (Jan. 1 through Dec. 31), and memberships will be accepted at anytime during the current year.
All Yearly Memberships will expire December 31st, regardless of when memberships are submitted.
primary benefit of being a CGS member will be access to the Member Portal
on the new website which we will unveil in 2021 and the proprietary information
The Members Only portal will provide access to databases that heretofore have
been available only on our library’s in-house computers. These databases
include: the complete archive of the Cornerstone Clues, 1975-2020,
word-searchable within a given year; the Yearbooks of Greene County’s five
high schools, through 2017; the early hand-written Tax Books, broken down by
township. There will be “Poor Farm” records, Greene County
directories, family histories, Bible records, and other sources of genealogical
data, most of these digital files available through the efforts of Jim Fordyce.

RESEARCH SERVICES Our volunteer staff provides research service for its members who are researching their personal genealogy and family history. Our only additional charge is for postage as well as $0.50 for each photocopy. Please note that this service is for members only, for their personal use. Our staff does not search outside of our library. If you wish a search made in the Courthouse or other libraries, you will need a researcher. We do not have a list of professional researchers available at this time.
A few search guidelines will be very helpful in directing our search, if known:
1. Full name of the person / family about whom you are asking.
2. Gives dates: birth, death, marriages, etc. (or approximate)
3. Give the town or townships where this person / family resided.
4. If known, give any relevant
names: parents, siblings,
of a spouse, children's names, or names of children's spouses.
MONTHLY MEETINGS General Membership Meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month with the exception of December. Refer to Calendar of Events or contact our library for further information and guest speaker schedule. These meetings are open to the public as well as the membership.
