May Message from the President


Hello Everyone,

Our IRGS “season” is over for 2020, and while the summer looms large as a time of uncertainty, I assure you that the Indian River Genealogical Society is alive and well. While the Society is usually very quiet during the summer, we are working to schedule exciting and interesting programs for you to enjoy throughout the summer months.

Since we do not have formal General Meetings from May through August, this website will have valuable information to keep you informed about upcoming events and classes to help you fill your time.

Thank you for your interest and being a part of the Indian River Genealogical Society.

Keep safe and be well.

Marilyn Case, President

As a company dedicated to family history, we at MyHeritage greatly appreciate what you do. We believe that information about genealogy should be easily accessible to anyone who wants it.

That’s why we created the MyHeritage Knowledge Base: a dedicated educational website chock-full of quality articles, webinars, and how-to videos on a wide range of topics relating to genealogy and DNA. Available in 10 languages, the site is updated every week with new content. The Knowledge Base is completely free to access and no registration is required.
