The Niagara County Genealogical Society is an all volunteer organization that was organized in January 1979 for the purpose of advancing the study of genealogy among its members and the general public. We are chartered by the NY Board of Regents as a non-profit educational group.

     Whether your ancestors settled here or used it as a stopping off place, Niagara County is rich with history of people pushing west to explore our great country. Did your ancestors use the Erie Canal and the Niagara River to move west? They may have left their genealogical imprint here! We are located on the second floor of the Niagara County Historical Society Museum at 215 Niagara Street, Lockport, NY, where we maintain a first rate genealogical library! We love visitors and are open to the public Thursday - Saturday 1-4:45 pm, with few exceptions. Please see our calendar for specifics!

     We are pleased to present this web site for our friends and patrons around the world. Membership has its benefits in the form of an outstanding quarterly newsletter, a look-up program and if you are local, a schedule of lectures throughout the year. For a small fee you can make a commitment to our Society and help us expand our resources so that we can offer them to you. Membership is open to anyone. Come visit us today!
