We are so excited you found us. Come join us and see why the unraveling of family history is the fastest growing hobby in the land. All members of Idaho Genealogical Society and persons interested in their family history are welcome. The Idaho Genealogical Society meets 11 months out of the year.

Board meetings are held at the Boise Library, located at Cole and Ustick, 7557 W. Ustick, Boise, Idaho.

We will be changing board meetings to a new location in 2018.

A Call for IGS Volunteers for the year 2012

On April 2, 2012 the wait will end for the 1940 U.S. Federal Census.  The National Archives and Records Administration will digitally release the census. The 1940 and later censuses are not available for public use, because of a statutory 72-year restriction on access for privacy reasons. (92 Stat. 915; Public Law 95-416; October 5, 1978). [i]
Information about you or a deceased person from the 1940 or later censuses can be obtained by either filling out Form BC-600 from the Bureau of the Census Age Search Service or writing to: U.S. Census Bureau, National Processing Center, 1201 East 10th St., Jeffersonville, IN 47132.

Because the 1940 U.S. Census does not contain an Index when released April 2012, FamilySearch.org will start a 1940 Indexing Project:  https://www.familysearch.org/1940Census.  FamilySearch.org recently contacted the Idaho Genealogical Society for help in contacting people interested in this worthwhile project.  They want local people to index their own state.

If you are interested in this project, please contact President Juvanne Martin, CG; Idaho Genealogical Society, (208)-461-8866 or email: idahogenealogy@hotmail.com.

The Idaho Genealogical Society also needs help in other areas:
  • People to serve on the Board of Directors. 
  • Quarterly Magazine: Submitting stories and photos help with editing and proofreading, photo resizing; layout and design.
  • Submitting genealogical events throughout Idaho for magazine, newsletter, Facebook, and blog.  
  • Webpage:  Help add links to site, type content material into a Word Document; create a database using Microsoft Access and scan documents.
