      "Community Cookbooks:
       The City Directories for Women"
                Speaker: La Nell Shores, Past President &
                                     current Boardmember of the
                                     Oklahoma Genealogical Society
Having trouble finding the women in your family? Want to know more about them?  La Nell Shores will discuss using community cookbooks in your research. Find what your ancestors were cooking and serving their families and to what clubs and churches they belonged. Many of our female ancestors donated recipes to produce cookbooks that raised money for various causes. Using these cookbooks, you may be able to fill in some gaps in your family history.
Meetings start at 6:00 pm in the Chesapeake Room of the Oklahoma History Center, 800 Nazih Zuhdi Drive, Oklahoma City (across from the State Capitol).

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

An Invitation for Settlers & Builders of Oklahoma

The Settlers and Builders of Oklahoma, under the jurisdiction of the Oklahoma Genealogical Society, was founded to recognize, honor, and perpetuate the memory of the residents that helped build the new State of Oklahoma from statehood, 16 Nov 1907 through 31 Dec 1929. Note: Anyone that resided in the Twin Territories prior to statehood is also eligible for the OGS First Families of the Twin Territories Lifetime Membership. You can nominate anyone you believe should be honored for their contribution(s) to the settling and/or building of Oklahoma.  Get more information here.

OK2Explore Vital Records

OK2Explore Oklahoma State Vital Records Index
The Oklahoma State Department of Health has recently introduced its new OK2Explore Oklahoma State Vital Records Index.
For genealogists, knowing when someone was born or died can help determine whether or not you have the right person.  The new vital records index includes death records occurring more than 5 years ago and birth records occurring more than 20 years ago. In 2016, the Oklahoma legislature passed legislation that now allows full death records to be public after 50 years and birth records to be public after 125 years. The Oklahoma Genealogical Society thanks Kelly Baker, OSDH Registrar of Vital Records for her leadership of this project which was delivered six months ahead of schedule.
