Historical and Genealogical Society began in 1966 when
concerned citizens of the community recognized the need for a genealogical
organization to collect, preserve and disseminate genealogical and related
historical data, with special emphasis on the preservation of Sedgwick County
history and heritage. The society is conducted as a non-profit
educational organization under Internal Revenue Code, Section 501 (c) (3),
operating as a corporation,
with current bylaws and standing rules.
MHGS is a non profit organization with no ethnic, age
or racial restrictions.
and Genealogical Society library is open most Tuesdays and most Saturdays from
9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. (check the
calendar for closings). The library is
operated by an all volunteer staff. If you have a few
hours a month that you could volunteer please contact
us and we will match your skills and talents to our needs. Because our
staff is limited when requesting copies of any of our material please
allow four weeks for MHGS to receive and process your request.

Memorial Day is a particular
favorite of genealogists...a three-day holiday when our "normal" relatives join
us in hanging out in cemeteries. Because of this connection between genealogy
and Memorial Day, this year the library will be open for our regular hours on
Saturday, May 25, 2013. Bring those genealogy-minded relatives down to do
cemetery look-ups, check out our obituary collection, or just take advantage of
our nice big tables, copier and scanner to share your research and photos.
