Welcome to The Durham-Orange Genealogical Society of North Carolina Webpage.
Our Mission: A nonprofit organization established in 1989 and dedicated to the research and preservation of family history of Durham and Orange counties, North Carolina.
The society meets one time a month on the first Wednesday of each month. Meeting locations alternate between Orange and Durham Counties. Our meetings are open to the public and a schedule of our events can be found on our calendar.
The society’s Computer Interest Group (CIG) also meets one time a month on the second Saturday of each month from 9 am to noon. Meetings are held downstairs in the Chapel Hill Public Library at 100 Library Drive, Chapel Hill, NC unless otherwise noted.
Unfortunately the website was hacked back in October and when it was rebuilt we lost a lot of the new pages and functionalities we had added over the past year. Because of this, we are looking into alternative options for creating a new and more functional website. So please be patient with us. The new website should be up and running by March 2013!!! We are all very excited by the possibilities.
