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.
