The Marion County Genealogical & Historical Society was founded in 1976 as a not-for-profit organization. The Society is located in the county seat of Salem, Illinois.


The purpose of the organization is, per our constitution, "to bring together those people interested in the history or genealogy of our community" and to "discover and collect any material which may help to establish or illustrate the history of the county."


Furthermore, the Society "will disseminate historical and genealogical information and arouse interest in the past by publishing such material."  As a means to that end, we publish a quarterly magazine called Footprints in Marion County  that members receive as a benefit of their membership in our group.


Regular meetings are held on the fourth Monday of each month, with the annual business meeting taking place in June.


Members are encouraged to bring guests to the meetings, and the public is always welcome to attend.
