Our mission is to promote and nurture an interest in genealogy by providing instruction, information, and inspiration, while encouraging members and others in the development of family histories and genealogical records, for the benefit of future generations.
We are very proud of our history. We can trace our beginnings back to 1979. Our charter was granted by the Ohio Genealogical Society in 1980. Today we continue to preserve the genealogies of Union County and the surrounding area. We also welcome any one to join our society, whether or not they have Union County roots.

All fourteen of our townships contain multiple cemeteries. We have digitalized copies of the WPA maps for many of these cemeteries. We are working to include driving directions and brief histories of all cemeteries known to have existed in Union County. Our cemetery books are now available via the members only section of this website.
