THREE LAKES GENEALOGICAL SOCIETYP O Box 101, Three Lakes, WI 54562
TLGS was formed to provide meetings and programs of genealogical interest and instruction in genealogical procedures. The members are researching many different ethnic origins and include beginners to advanced genealogists. In fact we have three DAR members in our group and pay special attention to helping beginners who join us
Meetings are held on the fourth Monday of each month at 1PM in the Demmer Library, Three Lakes, with the exception of November and December which are combined for our Ethnic Christmas party. Dues are $15. per year for individuals or families, which includes a “Getting Started” booklet for new members, and semi-annual newsletter. TLGS has at least one, possibly two lockins at the Demmer Library per year. The Demmer Library is a lending library for the LDS Family History microfilms, has a collection of area newspapers on film as well as local area censuses. Their History Room is extensive with microfilm reader and printer, affording our members with easy access to online genealogical materials. Meetings include a short business session followed by an instructional program or our very popular “Members Helping Members” sessions aka “brick walls and successes”. In the past Members have gone on a field trip to the Wisconsin Historical Society for two or three days of research.
In addition to hosting several Cemetery Walks over the past few years, TLGS published several books on these walks and local family information. A few copies are still left for anyone interested. Our society has participated in the Three Lakes Heritage Fest each year. In the past two years they have uploaded all interments of the Three Lakes Cemetery with pictures to the findagrave.com site and have set up a system for continuance of updating in the future. Additionally in the last two years a committee has prepared several swingboards which cover local pioneer family histories and pictures, which are displayed at the Three Lakes Historical Society.
Indexing vital records from back issues of local Three Lakes and Eagle River newspapers will be our next project starting Fall 2013.
The society is willing to assist researchers of the local area wherever possible, for a small donation. For additional information contact us by mail or email as shown above.
