The St. Louis Genealogical Society hosts many events throughout the year.

The society’s general meetings are held monthly (except for the month of our Family History Conference and December). Monthly meetings are hybrid: in-person and via Zoom. At this time, the in-person meetings are at various locations awaiting the completion of the new Clark Family branch of the St. Louis County Library. Meeting locations are posted on the Monthly Meeting page and in the yearly flyer posted on the Calendar of Events page (see link above). Monthly meetings are held on Saturday mornings from 10:00 a.m.–12:00 noon.

All society meetings are free and open to the public; however, registration is required to attend Zoom meetings and for those at our office because of space limitations. Each meeting opens with announcements and introductory remarks followed by a lecture presentation by a featured speaker. Please check our calendar for the complete schedule of meeting times and topics.

In addition, there are Special Interest Groups (SIGs), each of which offers meetings four times a year. Meeting times, days, and locations vary. Please check the individual SIG pages for those groups in which you have an interest: GermanIrish. and JewishEveryone is invited to these free meetings.

The Annual Family History Conference

Almost each year since 1970, the society has hosted an all-day Family History Conference (FHC), held each spring. The FHC typically features one or more nationally-recognized speakers, several outstanding local speakers, a vendor area, and an optional lunch.

Speaker Series

The society’s Speaker Series, held once or twice a year, in July and in October, offers an all-day genealogical event focused on a specific topic. Typically delivered by a nationally-known expert in the field, the Speaker Series includes a series of lecture presentations on the event topic, and lunch is included in the program.

Salt Lake City Research Trip

Each year in November, society members have the opportunity to conduct their family history research in the world’s largest genealogical library—the Family History Library in Salt Lake City, Utah. Guided by experienced tour leaders, each participant works independently on his or her research agenda. This research package includes seven nights of hotel lodging and on-site assistance by the group leaders. Click here for more information.

Handicap Access

The society makes every effort to assure access to its events for those with special needs. If you have such a need, or have a question about this, please contact the society.
