What we are and what we do:

The Winston County Genealogical Society was organized on January 19, 1998 for the purpose of helping to preserve the history of Winston County and to allow people to share information about their family lineage with ties to Winston County.

The society meets the third Tuesday night of each month at 6:30 P.M. at the Winston County Archives in Double Springs, Alabama. To join the society, your membership dues are $20.00 per year ($5.00 for other interested household members).

The society's materials are now located at the Winston County Archives, which the society also helps staff. The Winston County Archives is currently open on Monday through Wednesday of each week. They can be contacted by e-mail at; by phone at 205-489-5035; or by mail at P.O. Box 27, Double Springs, AL 35553. The physical address is 25515 Hwy. 195 in Double Springs across from the court house. Click here for more information on the archives.

For its members, the society publishes a quarterly newsletter titled the "Trail Tracker." To receive future issues, just simply be sure that you are a member.
