WELCOME!
 
Welcome to the Lincoln-Lancaster County Genealogical Society where our mission is Preserving the Past for Future Generations.
The LLCGS was founded by 4 friends in 1975 over donuts and coffee. We are a volunteer-run organization dedicated to promoting genealogy, engaging members, and preserving records. Whether you have Lancaster County connections or not, we invite you to join us in
exploring your family history.
 


MEMBERSHIP DUES ANNOUNCEMENT
The pandemic has made changes to how LLCGS can achieve some of its stated purposes as an organization.  As a result, annual membership dues for renewal/joining LLCGS are being waived for September 1, 2020 – August 31, 2021. 
 
Current members will be automatically renewed during that time at no cost to you.
 
If you want to become a new member, please go to the membership menu option on the left side of this page and join online or join by mail.  No dues will be required for your first year of membership.
 
Questions can be forwarded to (duxs2001@yahoo.com or contact@llcgs.info ).
 
As a volunteer organization, we are dependent on membership dues and donations for our sustainability and you are always welcome to make a donation to the Society.  This can be done through Paypal by choosing the “Support Us” link at the bottom of this page or you can send a check to LLCGS, P.O. Box 30055, Lincoln, NE  68503.
 


LLCGS Sponsored Events Have Moved to the 
Virtual World
 
We feel it is in the best interest of our membership to suspend in-person meetings and education sessions for the foreseeable future.  We are offering many of our planned events on virtual platforms such as Zoom and Freeconferencecall.com.  You can find more details on the Event Calendar page of this website.  

If you have never particpated in an online session, please signup for an event that interests you.  You can inquire about any online session by emailing - programs@llcgs.info
