WHO WE ARE
The Monroe Juneau Jackson Genealogical Workshop, Inc was formed in 1983 to provide an association of those interested in genealogy; to collect and when practicable, to publish genealogical, biographical, and historical material relating to said tri-counties families and their forebears; to foster and increase interest in genealogy; to encourage genealogical departments in libraries in the said tri-counties in co-operation with any other organization, agency or municipality.
MJJGW members help to assist researchers working on their family history in the tri-county area through our Newsletter, e-mail, or regular mail. We also help to preserve and publish local records and to conduct workshops from time to time in both genealogical research and the preservation of genealogical records.
You do not have to reside in the tri-county area to be a member of MJJGW. Anyone with an interest in their family history is invited to join and come to our meetings. We are a tri-county club but do not have access to research materials for Jackson and Juneau Counties. People should contact that area directly.
Four NEWSLETTERS are published annually and contain family history records, church, cemetery, military and school records, vital statistics, self-helps, book reviews, as well as other informative articles on genealogy, primarily in the tri-county area.
Free SURNAME QUERIES in our Newsletter for members who are researching in the tri-county area. A NEWSLETTER INDEX with over 28,000 names from the quarterly Newsletters that have been published since April of 1986. They have been indexed and alphabetized by surname. Please email MJJGW, listee below, to learn if your surname is in the index. If it is we will let you know how to obtain a copy of the newsletter in which the name appears.
10% DISCOUNT on MJJGW publications (except for sale items).
NOTICE of pre-publication prices for MJJGW's new books.
Seven MEETINGS annually to conduct the business of MJJGW, along with time to learn about and share our family history research successes and challenges.
Other seminars, mini-classes, or guest speakers are scheduled from time to time according to the interests of family history researchers.
Our membership year runs from May 1st to April 30th. Annual dues are $10.00 individuals, $12.00 family or organizations.
