Grand Traverse Area Genealogical Society

Welcome to GTAGS!

We are pleased that you are visiting the Grand Traverse Area Genealogical Society’s website. GTAGS was established in 1979 to support those with an interest in genealogy. Most of our members reside (full-time or seasonally) in the four county Grand Traverse area, but our family origins are from all over North America and throughout the world. We welcome all, wherever your family tree is rooted.
 
GTAGS fosters interest and skills to support your genealogy search. Whether you are just beginning your family research or are well advanced on your journey of building your family tree, GTAGS will add value to your experience. We encourage you to share your experiences and gain support from others with a common interest. Enjoy discovering the stories of your family’s past and building your family tree.
