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.

LLCGS Sponsored Events Cancelled & Postponed
The response to the coronavirus outbreak is rapidly changing. Based on the number of group events being canceled or postponed and in order to ensure the health and well-being of our members, LLCGS will suspend all meetings and education sessions until further notice. 

We will try to reschedule any missed programs later in the year for the benefit of the membership.  We will keep you informed through emails and updates to the LLCGS event calendar.
