Genealogy Research Group

Genealogy Reach Group will meet Wednesday, September 18th in the Family History Room of the Lawton Public Library. Open to all genealogy enthusiasts.

SWOGS members will be on hand to show beginners how to start researching their own family history. Bring what family information you know to start your family tree. Family group sheets and pedigree charts are available for you at the library.

We will share resources to help you break through those brick walls and further your family history research. The group’s hosts will also be able to aid participants with newspaper research, Ancestry DNA results, and patriot lineage society applications.

Free Wi-Fi, if you wish to bring your laptop. Ancestry, FamilySearch, and other genealogy programs and websites, are available on the Family History Room’s computer workstations.

The Family History Room collection consists of over 26,000 books and periodicals, 150,000 microfiche, and 6,000 rolls of microfilm. It includes all Federal census schedules, local and area newspapers from 1901, Indian-Pioneer History Collection, Dawes Rolls, Military records, family histories, vital records, Oklahoma Tract Books with surname index, research reference aids, and so much more.
