Wisconsin State Genealogical Society.
The Wisconsin State Genealogical Society (WSGS) is a statewide genealogical organization. Founded in 1939, WSGS now has members both within and outside of Wisconsin.
WSGS is a non-stock, nonprofit Wisconsin corporation whose basic purpose is to encourage, facilitate and improve the quality of genealogical study in Wisconsin and about Wisconsin families. To these ends WSGS:
- Collects and publishes genealogical and historical material related to Wisconsin families and their forebears
- Conducts meetings and conferences for the instruction and interest of members
- Encourages the establishment of genealogical collections in libraries throughout the state
- Works to ensure public records in Wisconsin remain open for genealogical and historical research.
Mary Rieder has been the President of the Wisconsin State Genealogical Society since 2007. She grew up in Milwaukee and Grafton, Wisconsin, and has a Master of Library and Information Science degree from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. She enjoys researching the roots of her “American melting-pot” children who are German, Polish, English, Welsh, Dutch, Norwegian, Slovak and Bohemian.
