When it comes to researching your family history, there is much to explore. There are ancestors to be found, mysteries to be solved, and stories to be written. Where do you start? One source of material is the local historical society. In addition to a treasure trove of artifacts and exhibits, the Greene-Dreher Historical Society’s collections include documentary and photographic material as well, and we would be happy to tell you about it and provide access. Knowing more about the history of a farm, mill, village, business, township or county will help you understand your ancestors in context.
If we are to have any hope of understanding our ancestors, we have to understand where they lived. — Amy Johnson Crow, Certified Genealogist
Another important part of genealogy research is knowing where your ancestors are buried. Cemeteries can reveal a lot of previously unknown information about your ancestor and his or her family. The Historical Society is in the process of researching and documenting our historic cemeteries and making the information available to the public.
If you are interested in family history, or are looking for material relating to Greene or Dreher Townships, you can search one of our many collections.
