The Johnson County Genealogical Society and Library is dedicated to fostering genealogical activities in Johnson County, in Kansas, the United States -- and the world. We provide technical and personal assistance and encouragement to our members in their genealogical research, education and related endeavors no matter where their journey takes them. Most of us reside in Johnson County and we help out in research here, but our research can take us all over the world.
The Society also maintains a collection of genealogical publications at the Johnson County Central Resource Library. JCGS volunteers staff the genealogy desk at the library located at 87th and Farley Streets in Overland Park, Kansas.
