Larry Naukam, RGS President

Welcome to the Rochester Genealogical Society and our new website. RGS is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to helping members improve research skills and broaden their enjoyment of family history. We invite you to explore our new site and learn what we have to offer. Members can view a video on the RGS YouTube Channel, click on this link, to learn how to access the members only area.

We hope you will join us for our general meeting on June 21st at the Tinker Family Homestead in Tinker Nature Park. The meeting starts at 6:30 PM with a Bring Your Own Picnic followed by a presentation by Henrietta Town Historian, Tina Thompson, on the history of the Tinker Family Homestead. A tour of the farmhouse will conclude our meeting. It will be great way to welcome Summer and meet other family history buffs.

It's that time of the year when we ask members to renew your membership or genealogy enthusiasts to join us for the first time. During the past year, RGS presented many engaging speakers who spoke on a variety of interesting topics. Let us know how they helped you find a new ancestor, add to your story, or break through a brick wall by contacting us at info@nyrgs.org

We will soon be emailing a survey to all our members. Please complete the survey by June 30th. We would love to get to know you better and understand how we can better serve your needs.
