Welcome to the Coweta County Genealogical Society
WE ARE OPEN !
We are happy to announce that the Coweta County Genealogical Society is now opened. We are still under the City of Newnan Covid-19 guidelines, so mask and safe distancing is in effect. We will be open for appointments only BUT will accept walk-ins. We are limited to 3 researchers plus staff in the library at one time, so if you do not have an appointment we may have to ask you to make an appointment and return later. If the open flag is out, we are open. Please have your mask on, read and fill out the information sheet in the box by the entrance door.
PLEASE MAKE AN APPOINTMENT
The times are Wednesday – Friday 10 am to 4 pm. At this time due to volunteer availability we will only be open on SATURDAYS by appointment only.
To make an appointment for a 2 hour slot (you may stay longer if there is room), please email us at email@example.com or call Helen Camp at (770) 253-9530. You MUST leave a message and she will call you back, she does not answer unknown calls.
We are having issues with who has paid their dues for the current year January 1, 2020 through December 31, 2020. We are asking if you have not received your quarterlies for this year or if you can not get into your account online at the website, please email us. We are working diligently to get the library back on track and your help would be greatly appreciated. If you are able to contribute to help with the keeping the door open, please mail a check to the CCGS INC (Coweta County Genealogical Society) or you make a donation at the website just click on the “DONATE” button.
