History of the Tuscarawas County Genealogical Society

The Society was organized on Oct 24, 1968 with
24 charter members. They first met in member’s homes. The first library was on Cherry St. in Dover, Ohio. It was then housed in two different locations on the square in New Philadelphia before moving into the basement of the Pinnelli Building on 2nd St. SW, New Philadelphia. It was moved to Dennison, Ohio in 1990 and into its present location several years later.

Our library now contains over 7,000 books on genealogy and history, over 1,400 family histories, 1,200 rolls of microfilm -including area newspapers of the time, 100 trade and genealogy newsletters, and we have local church records including a large Moravian collection. The TCGS has cemetery records covering the county. The climate controlled archives building houses more than 1,500 court docket books and 906 file drawers or records.

Our membership averages 200 each year and we have 9 volunteers that staff the library.
Our Meetings are the first Monday of each month at 7:30 pm.

The Tuscarawas County Genealogical Society is a not-for-profit organization.  We rely solely on dues, book sales and donations for our support.  We do not receive any public money and are not affiliated with the county or any public library. Any financial contribution is greatly appreciated and will go to preserve your past.
