Take a look at our upcoming classes and workshops.
Joyce Miller McGough

It is with deep sadness and a heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of one of our board members, fellow researcher, and a friend of many, Joyce Miller McGough, on July 2, 2022. Joyce served as a Director at Large on our board for a number of years. In addition to other duties, Joyce was in charge of one of our fundraisers, the “Story Jars” that so many of us have purchased for ourselves and family members. Prior to her illness, we could see her smiling face at many of our programs and events. Joyce’s research was heavily focused on her Scandinavian heritage, but she was active in all aspects of genealogy and over the years a member of various committees in our society.
Joyce’s kindness and positive outlook on life was an inspiration and made an impression on all who knew her.  She will be remembered fondly and will be missed by many.
