NHG Is 25 Years Old !

For the past 25 years our group has been bringing the world of genealogy to the North Hills - and it's time to celebrate!  On August 9th from 1:00-4:00 we'll tour the Depreciation Lands Museum (www.depreciationlandsmuseum.org) on Rt 8 (map), as well as an ice cream and cake celebration.  

Special Interest Groups

NHG has organized Special Interest Groups for: Germany, British Isles, Eastern Europe (NEW!), and Pennsylvania. These groups meet outside of the regular North Hills Genealogists meetings, and focus on their specific areas of interest.  Please click on Special Interest Groups along the left of this page for details and meeting times and locations.  The NHG Board is planning two additional groups:  A Writing SIG and a Beginner's SIG, starting in September.  Please contact us at info@NorthHillsGenealogists if you are interested.

War of 1812 Pension Fund Wrap-up

 
A check from North Hills Genealogists for $2150 was delivered to FGS President Joshua Taylor and War of 1812 Preserve the Pension Fund chair David Rencher on Thursday, May 14, 2015, in their exhibit booth at the National Genealogical Society conference in St. Charles, MO.  This represented contributions from our members of $1075, which was matched by NHG.  That amount will in turn be matched by FGS and other organizations, bringing the total value of the contributions to close to $10,000.  What a great show of support from our group!
