The Maine Genealogical Society (MGS) is a non-profit charitable and educational organization. It was founded in 1976 to collect, exchange, preserve, and publish genealogical records, related documents, and information; and to promote and encourage interest and scholarship in genealogy and family history of the State of Maine.

Maine Genealogical Society has steadily gained a reputation for the quality of its annual Fall Conference, striving to bring national speakers to the state.
We’ve also developed a Spring Workshop dedicated to exploring one topic in more depth than a conference permits.
We are pleased to be associated with nine chapters located around the state. These chapters meet frequently and provide a more localized focus on area resources.
