CGC Member Spotlight: Northwest Suburban Council of Genealogists

The Northwest Suburban Council of Genealogists (NWSCG) was founded in 1977. Its major purposes are to promote the study of genealogy and history, to conduct programs and workshops, to encourage preservation of public and private records, and to assist members in the study of family history.

NWSCG generates a bi-monthly newsletter entitled News From the Northwest. It has created several publications that index records of interest to researchers in Chicago’s Northwest Suburbs. Current projects include donating resources to libraries impacted by Hurricane Katrina and indexing vital records that appeared in Paddock Publications during the 1920’s.

The society meets eight months out of the year (Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Sep, Oct, Nov) on the third Thursday of the month at 7:30pm. Meetings are held in Arlington Heights, IL in the Forrest View Education Center at 2121 South Goebbert. Speakers at the general meetings provide a wide range of information and experience in order to help the genealogist learn how to research his/her families. Membership is open to everyone. For more information, visit their website at or contact them via e-mail at

We are thrilled to have the NWSCG as a member of the Chicagoland Genealogical Consortium. Dan Wertz and Teresa McMillin are both representatives for NWSCG.
