Cedar Hill Genealogical Society
We formed this organization in 2012 to continue learning about our families’ history. Though we are located in southwestern Dallas County our people are from all over the globe.
We meet the second Thursday of the month at 6:30 at the Zula B Wylie Library in Cedar Hill, Texas. The meeting starts with a half hour eat and greet social time. We start for real at 7:00 with a short business meeting followed by a presentation on some aspect of family history research, followed by a question and answer period. Admission is always free and guests are always welcome.

May 11 program – Speaker: Barbara Wylie
Way Down in Missouri
Discussion of the state’s history, its geographic significance in U.S. westward migration and how family historians can research available public records in Missouri. Many genealogists in Texas and beyond find their family has history in Missouri, and that is true with several CHGS members, so this program should be of benefit to many family historians. Barbara will provide tips for researching Missouri and the Ozark Mountain region.

Favorite Ancestors and How to Find Them
We all have them — the ancestor, aunt, uncle or cousin we tell great stories about. They are often famous, infamous, heroes ... or not so much. You know, the ones everyone brags about or the ones the aunties stop talking about when the kids get too close.
At the June meeting, CHGS members will tell us all about a relative that they found interesting and how they discovered the facts and determined how much of the stories are true. We’ll also talk about the ones WE discovered during our research and how to discover a fantastic ancestor.
