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.

The CCGS Library

The CCGS has a private Library located in Vancouver, Washington that is open to the public and houses over 8000 items in its collection. The emphasis is on genealogy material for Washington and Oregon with most of the local coverage being on Clark and neighboring Southwest Washington Counties. We have items from all US States and several foreign countries as well as many Surname Genealogies. For more information on the location, hours, and resources of the Library, please visit the Library Page.
