The Central Florida Genealogical Society, Inc. is a non-profit society located in the Central Florida area that promotes family history research by providing education and research opportunities to its members and the public. We hold meetings in Orange, Seminole, and Osceola Counties. We have members living all over Central Florida and the United States. All of our meetings are free and open to anyone. We are also dedicated to aiding others living elsewhere who have ancestors from Central Florida. See our About Us page to learn more.
