Many newcomers to genealogy, and especially those that have only done cyber-genealogical research, may not realize that Union County has a genealogy society! The Carolinas Genealogical Society is a nonprofit organization chartered in 1964 for the purpose of gathering, compiling, publishing and preserving historical and genealogical records of the area. Since Union County was formed in 1842 from portions of Anson and Mecklenburg Counties, the society focuses primarily on Union Co. resources, and also on early Anson Co. and Mecklenburg Co. information.
Membership in the Carolinas Genealogical Society is open to all individuals interested in family research.
The society publishes a quarterly bulletin which contains information that cannot be found easily in any other venue, and most of which cannot be found anywhere online.
Thanks in part to the dues from memberships, the Carolinas Genealogical Society is a proud sponsor of The Heritage Room, a research facility located in the Historic Union County Courthouse, Monroe, N.C. The Heritage Room has books, family files, subject files, scrapbooks of obituaries, Bible records, marriages, Civil War pension records, genealogy bulletins and more. It also houses information on other counties and states, although not as extensively.
All gifts and contributions to the Carolinas Genealogical Society are tax deductible under the IRS Revenue Code Section 501 (c)3.
