One of SCCGS’s purposes is to preserve records of genealogical significance.

Quarterly and eNews

  • Members receive both publications in digital format and may submit queries for publication on its pages (free). Notable series published in the Quarterly.
  • Archived issues of the Quarterly are posted to the Member website. More than 250,000 names of our ancestors appear in the Quarterly. Find your ancestor in the surname index and order copies of articles.
  • The eNews replaced the printed Newsletter in 2022. Past issues of the Newsletter are archived on the Member website.

Books are timeless in genealogy

  • Our books for purchase, some digital.
  • Church records are our specialty; many are translated from German. A few of these resources are also on this site.
  • Cemeteries grouped by townships preserve tombstone readings for entire families scattered among them.
  • The St. Clair County Research and Resources Guide has opened doors for many genealogists.
  • Please support our efforts with your donation, or membership, or book purchase.
