Welcome New Member – Columbia County Historical and Genealogical Society

The Chamber is pleased to welcome The Columbia County Historical and Genealogical Society (CCHGS) as one of its newest members.

The CCHGS is committed to the collection, preservation, and publication of the history of Columbia County and to develop resources to aid individuals to discover their family history.   It is a charitable and educational organization run entirely by loyal volunteers who collect and index important documents such as church records, cemetery listings, genealogies, manuscripts, photos, pamphlets, clippings, and many others, along with maintaining the Society’s museum and library.   Located on the second floor of the Bloomsburg Public Library, it has a library and limited museum collection that is open to the public.

Annually, the Society sponsors public programs, genealogy workshops, and tours to places of historical interest. It also publishes a Newsletter four times a year consisting of multiple pages.   Members are entitled to discounts for trips, purchases, and special programs that have a fee.  For more about the CCGHS, visit https://colcohist-gensoc.org/
