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 social half-hour with snacks and our program about some 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 February program will be Thursday the 8th:

Jim Thornhill will present:  Migration through the South

Jim will tell us about pioneer migration patterns from Virginia, the Carolinas and Georgia westward to Texas.          




Gone with the Wind The 1856 Cedar Hill Tornado describes the town, the damage, and how it recovered and prospered after the storm nearly blew it off the face of the earth.  We name the victims, describe their lives and tell their family histories for family historians to connect their families with these pioneers.
