Planning is underway for our 2020 Heartland Family History Conference (April 3-4, 2020), and we are currently seeking speaker proposals for breakout sessions.  If you are interested in being a presenter at this conference, click here for more detail and instructions on how to submit your proposal.  Deadline for submissions is October 15, 2020.

or fifty years, the Topeka Genealogical Society has been promoting and supporting family history interests in Shawnee County and northeast Kansas. Whether you are just wondering how to get started in learning about your ancestors, or are an experienced researcher, we offer resources and learning opportunities to assist you in the fascinating process of discovery that we call genealogy.  

Our library, located at 2717 SE Indiana Avenue, houses a large and growing collection of more than 12,000 books and 700 genealogical periodical titles. In addition to an outstanding collection of Shawnee County materials, the library offers resources pertaining to almost all U.S. states and many foreign nations. Whether your ancestors lived in Kansas or elsewhere, we are likely to have something useful to you in your research.   
Our educational offerings are equally diverse. We offer monthly programs featuring local speakers, an annual conference featuring a nationally recognized speaker, and an array of classes, workshops, interest groups and research trips offered throughout the year to meet the varied needs and interests of our members and the community. 

Membership in the Topeka Genealogical Society also offers fun opportunities to get to know other genealogists, to learn from and share with other members, or to get involved in one or more of our many activities and projects.    

We invite you to explore our website and learn about TGS and the many resources and opportunities that we offer.
