Welcome

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.

1940 Census draws closer to the date of release!

Here is a fantastic video on the release of the 1940 census. We are excited to be a part of the indexing project through partners FamilySearch.org,  Archives.com, and Findmypast.com. Until the indexed records are released you will be able to see the images from the census by enumeration district only. To find out how to find your ancestor by enumeration district, watch this video from Archives.gov:

Then on April 2, you can see the digitized images from the census @ 1940census.archives.gov.

(Remember they are not indexed! That is why we are volunteering to index them.)

If you are interested in volunteering in the indexing project, please register for an indexing account at : http://the1940census.com . Once you submit your name, email, and preferred state to index, you will get instructions in an email on how to sign up. When you create your profile, remember to look for: <Group> on the <My Profile> page. Under <Group>, select <Idaho Genealogical Society>. We would be grateful if you joined our team! The sponsors are going to have some fun contests with prizes to encourage the volunteers. It's going to be a unique opportunity for all ! Please join us and be sure to send us an email when you sign up @ idgensociety@gmail.com. We can confirm that you've joined our group and if not, we can fix it so you are!!
