The Shelby County Genealogical Society is always looking for people interested in Shelby County Genealogy. If you are one of those individuals, feel free to give us a call. We would be happy to discuss local genealogy with you.

In the interest of making Shelby County information more readily available to those whose roots are in our county, the Shelby County Genealogical Society, founded in 1975, began publication of a quarterly newsletter, SHELBYANA, in October 1979.

Since it first issue, SHELBYANA has continued a wide variety of Shelby County genealogical material.  Starting with the earliest recorded in the county, will abstracts, guardianships, and newspaper items have been published chronologically and in current issues.

Some of the many additional items included for genealogists have been naturalizations, births, deaths, burials, marriages, court records, Bible records, and other family information.  Each issue contains a surname index for easy reference.

Subscriptions to SHELBYANA are included automatically with membership in the Shelby County Genealogical Society, and include unlimited free queries (research question or specific help request from other members and readers).

SCGS membership years run from January 1 through December 31.  Dues are $12.00 per year, includes four issues of SHELBYANA and can include a second person at the same address if a second name is provided.  Dues must be paid before a SHELBYANA issue will be sent.
