Monthly programs are free for members and non-members alike, but we encourage you to join!  Your membership dues and donations help us to provide more and better resources for the genealogical community of Oklahoma.  See the Membership section on this website.

In case of conflict with a federal or state holiday, the meetings will be held on the second Monday evening of each month.

Experienced researchers will be available before the meeting at 5 p.m. to answer research questions.  The OGS meetings begin at 6:00 p.m. and finish at 7:45 p.m.  The Oklahoma History Research Library is also open until 7:45 p.m. on the evenings when OGS meets.
