GCGSI Calendar of Events

All GCGSI activities are subject to change. Please check your email and our Facebook page for updates.

Due to the lack of availability of GCGSI volunteers to assist patrons with genealogical research at the Gilmer County Library on Fridays, we are suspending the Research Fridays program at this time.  If you need assistance in researching your family tree, we ask that you email us at [email protected]  with the details needed in your research.  If you prefer to receive help in person in the Family Research Center at the library, you may make an appointment by either emailing us or sending us a message via Facebook.  Please provide contact information, details of your research needs, and a couple of preferred date(s) and time(s.)  We will be in touch to set up an appointment.  Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
