Discovering Our Families’ Heritage

Welcome to the Cedar Hill Genealogy Society web site.  We are a growing group of genealogists and family historians organized to help each other and our guests discover their family’s heritage.  We meet monthly in the Cedar Hill Library, 225 Cedar Street, Cedar Hill, TX    Admission is always free.  Our meetings  begin at 6:30 PM with a half-hour with snacks and socializing.  Our program about an aspect of family history research starts at 7:00 PM.

Check out our BLOG page for articles from your fellow genealogists who describe how they solved a research problem.  Click on the “Follow” icon at the lower right of your screen and we’ll send you an email when ever we add a new post.

We encourage you to email us using the CONTACT US form with your questions.  We can even set up a meet to personally work with you on your family tree.


Our June Program will be Thursday the 13th

Need help with that ancestor you can’t find?

If you have one of those ancestors that seems to have eluded the census taker or somehow left no paper trail, we would like to help.  We will show you how we found him in our June meeting.  Sometimes we don’t succeed either, but we’ll have suggestions for further research.

If you would like, one of our most experienced researchers can help get you past that brick wall.  Please click here to download a printable copy of our Brick Wall Search Form.  You can also scan it or take a picture of the filled-out form and email it to me at dklauckg@gmail.com.  I’ll make sure it gets to the right person.

Your puzzle may take some time to solve so don’t delay, mail it today.
