Tri-State Genealogical Society - Which One?
I was looking through Cyndi's List for some information on "Digital Archiving" and found myself looking in "Societies & Groups" and thought I would check to see if we were listed, Cyndi only has 7280 links for this category. Good news, we were listed and with a separate link for this blog. But the bad news is that there are four "Tri-State Genealogical Societies" listed... which one are we? Well, that is not difficult to see which one represents Indiana, Illinois & Kentucky as each one lists which tri-state is represented by that organization.
Besides the 4 tri-state groups, there are 3 tri-county societies and a tri-city. Bear in mind that these are listed because they each have a web site of one sort or another... there may be more tri-state, tri-county or tri-city groups that do not have a web site or have not ensured that they were listed. As I said our TSGS represents IN, KY, IL... there is one for 3 counties in WV, OH, PA (they could have called themselves "tri-county" as well!). The other 2 TSGS's cover South Dakota, Montana & Wyoming with the second one covering Arizona, California and Nevada.
We can boast about being around for a long time being organized in 1977, but Tri-City Genealogical Society was founded in 1961.
Here is a link to our web site: TSGS: IL, IN, KY
