Organization’s Purpose: The Washington County Genealogical Society’s purpose is to meet together to promote and support a mutual interest in Genealogy. We encourage others to become interested in genealogy and will assist in research in Washington County, NE. The Society collects, records, and catalogs genealogical data for public use.

Our Mission is to help preserve records and documents for future public use.

Donations to the Washington County Genealogy Society will be used in the support of research expenses.

The purpose of the Washington County Genealogical Society is to promote research and give guidance to those who are tracing their family lines through the searching of records, people and places. The society continues to foster an interest in all peoples who contributed in any way to the establishment and perpetuation for the county of Washington in the state of Nebraska.

The Washington County Genealogical Society is a volunteer organization. Many of the society’s projects are the collection, copying, and cataloging of historical documents for anyone to use. The volunteers have a “look-up” service for those persons who do not live in the area.

The society meets once a month on the 1st Wednesday of the month at 2:00 p.m. for discussions, speakers, and to work on projects. Anyone is welcome to join our society, whether you reside locally or elsewhere in the world. Please do come to one of our meetings, enjoy the program, and meet the other members of our group.

You may join and become a member at any meeting. Dues are $10.00 annually. Call the Blair Public Library at 402-426-3617 or email at  for meeting dates and times.
