About the Society

The Prince George's County Genealogical Society, founded in 1969, is the oldest Maryland County Genealogical Society in continuous existence. Its objectives are to collect, preserve, and disseminate genealogical knowledge and information, particularly that material that deals with Prince George's County, Maryland. The society is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) educational and cultural organization. Contributions, gifts, and endowments are tax deductible. The Society meets at the New Carrollton Municipal Center the first Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m. We do not meet in July, August, or January.
