Northwest Suburban Council Of Genealogists Will Be Undergoing A Name Change On August 1, 2014; The New Society Name Will Be The Northwest Suburban Genealogy Society; Same Website Address; Same Location For Programs

Hi Everyone!

NWSCG LogoThe Northwest Suburban Council of Genealogists, a local genealogy society that holds its meetings/programs in Arlington Heights, IL, will be undergoing a name change effective August 1, 2014.

(Their logo still shows the old name of the society.  That will probably be updated in the future.)

The new name of the society will be the Northwest Suburban Genealogy Society.

You can still find the society at their current web address of

Their website is already reflecting their changed society name.

You can visit them at:

Northwest Suburban Genealogy Society

It appears that nothing else is changing for the society except the name.  They will be having their meetings/programs at the Arlington Heights Senior Center in Arlington Heights, IL.  Their web address is still the same as before at

It appears to be business as usual for the society.  There is no need to think that there is a new society in the area when you start hearing and seeing the new name of Northwest Suburban Genealogy Society.  You just need to start putting the new name of the society in your head and start using it in your discussions and in your own writing.  I know, old habits die hard, especially with a name change.

Just remember, that it is still the same great society local to our Northwest Suburban area that you have always known about.

I have already started making changes to where I have referred to it in my various calendars.  Hopefully, I won’t slip up and refer to it as its former name.

Congratulations to the Society.  Be understanding as the new name takes a foothold.  Same great society with the same great members!
