North Hills Genealogists

The North Hills Genealogists is a group of people interested in genealogy and researching their family histories.  Located in the North Hills of Pittsburgh, Pa., our members have common interests in both the geographic areas north of the city as well as the geographic origins of our ancestors.  many of our members also live in the North Hills area.

Meetings are on the third Tuesday of every month except December, starting at 7pm at the Northland Public Library.  More details, including driving directions and meeting topics, are on our website at www.NorthHillsGenealogists.org.  All meetings are free and open to the public.  Additional information is also available by emailing INFO@NorthHillsGenealogists.org

The monthly meetings each feature a guest speaker addressing the group on a subject related to genealogy.  A "roundtable discussion" is periodically scheduled instead of a lecture, giving each person a chance to ask questions or to tell of a great research breakthrough.  

We arrange field trips to repositories and locations such as Washington DC, The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Wester Reserve Library in Cleveland, and West Virginia University.

We publish 10 monthly newsletters per year, which includes articles to help you find resources, tips on how to do better genealogy, and announcements of upcoming events. the newsletter is available either electronically via email or in hardcopy via USPS.

Membership dues are $15 year (August through July); back issues of the newsletter are sent to min-year newcomers.
