Our Society

The Jackson County Genealogical Society was formed in 1977 by a small group of people, all of whom lived in the Jackson County area.  Initially, meetings were held in homes, libraries and churches.

Our first newsletter was published on April 4, 1978, containing our By-Laws, Objectives & Purpose, Upcoming Events, How-to's and Search Tips.

The Lexicon, our quarterly publication, was first published in the spring of 1979 and produced on an old mimeograph machine.

In 2004 our Library was established to serve as a repository for research files and resources that had been held in members' homes.  Our holdings are 100% donated and include resources not only for Jackson but of many other areas.  Our current location is the lower level in the backside of 211 West Ganson, Jackson MI.


Our Library is a non-profit, all volunteer organization.  We depend on our Members and Patrons, like you, to keep us open.

All funds collected for research are used to support the Library as none of our volunteers receive compensations for their time. 


Donations over and above our fees are greatly appreciated.
