Schedule of Meetings and Events

The Western New York Genealogical Society hosts a minimum of four member meetings a year. These meetings are generally scheduled for the third Saturday of the month during March, April, May, September, October and November (unless special opportunities and/or conflicts arise). Locations may vary, so please remember to consult the most current published event descriptions. Additional paid trips, workshops and activities may be offered during the year.

As an added benefit, copies of handouts and presentation materials as well as videorecordings are shared with our members whenever possible.
