The Waupaca Area Genealogical Society is dedicated to promoting an interest in genealogy and family history, with an emphasis on local Waupaca County history. We provide education, instruction and encourage family history documentation, writing your story, and preservation of the family through careful documentation and maintaining quality genealogical standards.
As a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization, the society is solely supported by volunteers who contribute their time, efforts, and knowledge. We strive to be an inspiration to all who desire to know who they are, where they are from, and how we got here. We encourage all, to share family stories, research discoveries, and methods, for all ages and all backgrounds.
We meet monthly virtually or at the Historic Holly History and Genealogy Center
located at 321 S. Main Street, Waupaca, WI 54981. This building was one of 60 buildings funded in Wisconsin by the Andrew Carnegie, grant, and the city of Waupaca which opened in 1914 as the Waupaca Library. Currently, about 20 of these buildings still exist in Wisconsin. Waupaca Library moved on to the new modern site in 1992. Fortunately, this building was acquired by the Waupaca Historical Society, and together we are able to provide a place for our genealogy collections, meetings, and preservation of our ancestors and community.
The Waupaca Area Genealogical Society meetings are held on the second Saturday of each month.
Details will be announced on our Home Page, Facebook page, and in our newsletter. The public is always welcome.
