Mission Statement

The Illinois State Genealogical Society (ISGS) was formed in 1968 through the cooperative effort and forward thinking of Illinois genealogical society representatives, who envisioned a statewide genealogical organization. ISGS is a not-for-profit, nonsectarian, educational organization. ISGS was established for the following purposes: To stimulate an interest in the people who contributed to the establishment and development of the State of Illinois. To seek, preserve and make available data pertaining to individuals, families and groups who lived in Illinois, and to events which took place therein. To inform people about the value of, and the need for, preserving family and local history for posterity. To encourage and support local and regional genealogical societies.

Description

The ISGS Governing Board consists of the Executive Committee (elected officers, directors, and the immediate past president) and the appointed chairs of the Standing Committees - all with voting rights. Ex-officio non-voting members of the ISGS Governing Board are: the ISGS Office Secretary, the Secretary of State or his representative, the Director of the Illinois State Archives or his representative, members of the Illinois State Archives Advisory Board, a representative of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library, and the representatives to/from other organizations.
