 The mission of the Gogebic Range Genealogical Society is to promote and assist with the research and preservation of genealogy and family history of the Gogebic Range area. This area encompasses Gogebic County, Michigan, and Iron County, Wisconsin.  


Our genealogical society is dedicated to helping you find your roots on the Gogebic Range. Our obituary database contains the names of over 70,000 residents who lived on the Gogebic Range between 1890 and the present. Hundreds of records are being added every month.  


Our December 2014 newsletter is available...  just Click on 'Newsletters' above!  


Note:  We are letting you know that the Northern Waters Genealogical Society, in the county just south of us, has WONDERFUL monthly speakers about how to research different topics, and a support system to help you connect to genealogical resources in the area and on the internet.  Their meetings are only an hour drive southeast of us.  Please take a moment to see their highlighted speakers... you might want to attend!!  See their meeting schedules at their website at http://www.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~winwgs/meetings.htm  Their upcoming meetings:
