Genealogy

The purpose of the Genealogy Society of Pulaski County is to: ”assist anyone doing research in the County area and to do it as accurately as possible.” The Genealogy Society of Pulaski County Missouri was organized in 1985 from the Fort Wood/Pulaski County Genealogical Society. It is their intention to gather information/material pertinent to this area. The group’s first publication was the 1910 Census of Pulaski County Missouri. It was decided to have a quilt raffle to help raise money to publish the census. The group met at the Crocker City Hall in Crocker Missouri. In 1992 the Society moved their meeting to Waynesville and met at the Old Courthouse. The Genealogical/Historical Society meet on the first Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at 415 City Rt. 66 Waynesville, MO. Membership is $7.50 a year and you will receive four newsletters a year.
