Wisconsin State Genealogical Society

Affiliated Societies

The Wisconsin State Genealogical Society is proud that many Wisconsin-based genealogical and historical societies have signed on as Affiliated Societies. Scattered across the state, these organizations can provide the best assistance to genealogists researching a particular area. If you live in one of the areas they serve, are researching in the vicinity, or have family that come from there, we encourage you to join a local society.
 
If you are a genealogical or historical membership society based in Wisconsin and are interested in becoming an Affiliate Member of the Wisconsin State Genealogical Society, please fill out the Affiliate application form and send it, along with a check for your dues, to the WSGS Office.
