Welcome to the Clark County Genealogical Society. The CCGS was founded by Margaretta Zimmerman and fourteen of her friends in 1972, and is a volunteer run organization dedicated to encourage, foster, educate, and organize activities related to genealogy. Whether you have Clark County connections or not, we invite you to join us in exploring your family history.

CCGS maintains an active schedule of classes, meetings and seminars. We support a genealogical research library, open to the public, specializing in SW Washington, but with world-wide coverage. We publish the Trail Breakers periodical, a society newsletter and compilations of Clark County records. Our volunteers are involved in local cemetery maintenance, researching pioneer stories and indexing vital records.

We are located in the Clark County that is in Southwest Washington State–not Washington D.C. nor any of the other eleven U.S. Clark Counties nor the five U.S. Clarke Counties (although for a time our name was Clarke County.) We are located in the city of Vancouver, Washington–not Vancouver, Canada–and near Portland, Oregon–not Portland, Maine. Historic Fort Vancouver is located in Clark County and was for a time the western terminus of the Oregon Trail.
