Genealogy Programs and Events

Genealogy is about more than just finding out the names of people to which you may be related. It's about discovering your heritage, learning about your family's story, and understanding the events of the past. However, doing genealogical research can often be difficult. That's why we offer our programs and workshops on Genealogy topics.
Focus on Genealogy Programs
The St. Charles County Historical Society (SCCHS), together with the St. Charles City-County Library District, holds four free Focus on Genealogy Programs each year.  Our programs occur on Tuesday evenings in March, May, September, and November at the Kathryn Linnemann Library, 2323 Elm Street, in Saint Charles, MO. The programs are free and open to the public, however Reservations are Required.  Call the library at 636-723-0232 or go to to make reservations.
The programs allow speakers with experience to discuss genealogical topics, including how-to's and what resources to use. Past topics include:
  • Changes and updates on Family Search websites
  • How to preserve your own family's documents, photos, and other records
  • Using maps in genealogical research
  • Tips and tricks for doing African-American genealogy
