Meeting Here and Searching The World

Where We Meet

The Main Line Genealogy Club meets the 2nd Thursday of the month, September through June, from 1 to 3 pm. The Club began holding its monthly meetings online using Zoom in April, 2020. We will continue to meet online for the foreseeable future.

When the current health emergency subsides sufficiently to allow in-person meetings, we will resume them at our NEW location: Tredyffrin Public Library. 582 Upper Gulph Rd, Strafford, PA 19087, from 1 to 3 pm. These will be hybrid in-person and Zoom meetings to allow you to participate either way.

Whether you attend online or in person, we ask you to consider making a voluntary $5.00 contribution at each meeting to help defray our expenses.
