A chapter of the
Ohio Genealogical Society


All our positions are for unpaid member volunteers.  We have no paid staff.  If you are a member of HCGS and would like to become more active in our chapter, and do more for fellow members and others researching their ancestry, consider volunteering for one of our roles. Thanks for your interest and consideration!  Unless specifically noted below please contact Mark Steinke, HCGS Corresponding Secretary, at info@hcgsohio.org or by calling 513-956-7078.
Program Director
Our Education Director takes care of the Annual Seminar and classes that we offer with the Public Library for newer genealogists. The Program Director on the other hand is responsible for our regular monthly meetings or sometimes a special meeting. We do not usu-ally meet in June, July, or August unless a great opportunity presents itself. The Board can offer suggestions of who to contact and places to meet and what programs we might want to have OR if you are experienced you may go it alone. The primary responsibility is making the neces-sary phone calls and following up on the details for a suc-cessful program. Contact me or any Board member for additional information. No experience is needed, just a love of genealogy. If you are interested in finding out more about this role, please contact Kenny Burck at president@hcgsohio.org.
The Tracer
We always have a need for articles for The Tracer. The articles should be of interest to our members and others doing family research in Hamilton County OH.
Please contact Eileen Muccino, HCGS Tracer Editor, at tracer@hcgsohio.org if you would like to contribute an article.
