Update on meetings and events

Meetings and Events as of March 24, 2020

Consistent with recommendations on social distancing, the Grand Strand Genealogy Club is postponing  all meetings and events until further notice.  For updates, please check this website, our Facebook Page and emails.


Members are encouraged to continue genealogy exploration.  Here are some recommendations:  (1) Use this time to write a book about your family history, (2) interview a relative by phone, and (3) educate yourself on those research tools that you seem to never have the time to study and learn to use.


The Chapin Memorial Library physical library is closed, but the virtual library is open 24/7.
