Directions to Our Meetings

The Genealogical Society of Salem County now meets on the THIRD WEDNESDAY of each month from September to June. The meetings are held at 7 pm at the Catholic Community of the Holy Spirit in Woodstown, New Jersey. Most programs are open to the public, and usually feature a guest speaker lecturing on some aspect of genealogy research or local history. The gatherings also provide a chance to network with other researchers. Additional workshops and research trips are also scheduled at other times during the year.
