Lycoming County Genealogical Society
About Us Page
The Lycoming County Genealogical Society is an all-volunteer, non-profit organization established to collect, compile and preserve documents and information of genealogical interest concerning all areas of Lycoming County. Our library is housed within the Lycoming County Historical Society’s Taber Museum.
We further strive to promote and perpetuate the study of genealogy by presenting programs, free to the public, on the 4th Sat of March, April, May, Sept, Oct and November. (NOTE: In the event the 4th Saturday falls on a holiday weekend, the program date may be changed.) Additionally, volunteers are available to speak or conduct basic classes about genealogy.
A recent ongoing project has been to add obituaries from 2006 through the present to our obituary collection. To date, more than 10,000 new obituaries have been added, and the project is nearing completion. While the collection is mainly obituaries from 1996 through the present, intermixed among them are some much older obits and death notices, and we will continue to add the older ones as we obtain them.
Our library is open Tuesday through Friday from Noon to 4:00 p.m.and volunteers are always on hand to assist patrons. We also provide genealogy research for which we charge $15.00 per hour. We can be reached by telephone, U.S. mail and e-mail (information below). While we can take small requests such as for tombstone photos or obituaries over the phone, we suggest that persons requesting genealogy research contact us via e-mail or regular mail setting forth the specific information they seek.
