Welcome to the Elgin Genealogical Society

EGS was formed in 1972, our meetings are held at the Gail Borden Public Library in Elgin, Illinois

Our focus is to bring people together to promote genealogy, conduct programs which assist members with their own family history, encourage preservation of local records and make them accessible to everyone.

Volunteers from the Society are available several times during the month in the Genealogy Local History section of the Gail Borden Public Library and will be happy to assist you in your research. Click here to see times when they are available.
