What is the Collin County Genealogical Society?


The Collin County Genealogical Society was formed to help researchers find their ancestors. Our goals are to provide educational opportunities for our members through the Society Newsletter and Special Classes, to provide knowledgeable speakers for local residents, to support the Haggard Library Genealogy Section and to publish Collin County research material in the Collin Chronicles.


Society Monthly Meetings


Regular Society Meetings are held at 7:00 pm (New Start Time - so we can finish by 9 pm.) on the second Wednesday of every month Sept through June. We meet at the Haggard Library on Coit Road, between Park and Parker Rds. The Genealogy Library collection is in the basement. For more information about the library click here.


How can you reach us?


You can write us at CCGS, PO Box 865052, Plano TX 75086-5052
or email at address listed below.
Membership is $20 per year for an individual.
Society Year runs July to June. Back issues will be sent to late joiners.


Feel free to email us if you want to volunteer to do some transcriptions!

Notice

We still have very few hard copy issues of the Chronicles available for some years.
Priority will be given to libraries with missing issues.
All the Chronicle issues (except the last one or two) have been uploaded to the University of North Texas Portals website.
Their ocr reader and software leave a lot to be desired.
Each volume has an index at the end of the last issue.
It is best to check those rather than rely on the advanced search feature.
Contact webmaster for availability of hard copy back issues.
Current members will be able to download the last two issues on our Myfamily.com site.
We also have a master CD containing Volumes 1 through 5 which we can copy for a small fee.



The books by Joyce Martin Murray are still available.
Logan County, Kentucky 1792-1813
Logan County, Kentucky 1813-1819
Hawkins County, Tennessee 1801-1819

Information is in several recent Quarterlies.
