Welcome to the Clark County Genealogical Society. The CCGS was founded by Margaretta Zimmerman
and fourteen of her friends in 1972, and is a volunteer run organization dedicated to encourage,
foster, educate, and organize activities related to genealogy. Whether you have Clark County
connections or not, we invite you to join us in exploring your family history.
