Our Chapter


    The Chapter was organized in 1985 in Chapin, SC by a group interested in learning more about their ancestors. Today, there are more than 150 chapter members. The chapter is a non-profit organization with these objectives:

    Regular monthly meetings are held on the third Wednesday of the month with a speaker or other appropriate program followed by a business session and time to exchange family information. All interested persons are invited to attend any of these meetings.

    A highlight is the annual reunion in April with programs featuring interesting speakers, time for sharing genealogical interests and lunch catered by Shealy's BBQ.  All are invited to share this time with us.
