More About SVGS

Family History asks the questions: Where did I come from? What is the history of my family?

We, at Sioux Valley Genealogical Society, think it is important to find answers to these questions. Individuals need to have a sense of belonging and communities need to understand the historical bases of their distinctive character.

Our Society works to preserve our local heritage before valuable sources of history are no longer available. As community ties dissolve, and family ties weaken, we try to identify and record these ties.

Membership dues include the Pioneer Pathfinder, an excellent publication that is full of interesting information. Your search may reach a member working on the same family name.
