The society is non-profit and tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) and has focused on collecting, preserving, and disseminating information of historical and genealogical value in twenty-seven contiguous counties located in central Georgia.
CGGS holds monthly educational meetings with programs on local history, genealogical records and resources, methodology, DNA and military history. Our members are eager to assist genealogy beginners.
More intensive study can be found through the CGGS DNA Focus Group.
CGGS publishes a bi-monthly newsletter with society news and a semi-annual Journal containing articles such as transcribed court records, cemetery surveys, family Bible records and local history. CGGS has published 45 books many of which are in print and available for purchase from CGGS.
