The Peninsula Genealogical Society recently celebrated their 25th anniversary with an Ethnic Epicure Event. Members each brought a dish that his or her ancestors might have served.

The Genealogical Society has worked on many projects through the years to provide information to people researching their family history. These projects have culminated in a highly successful website managed by Sue Hohneke.

The website includes access to Door County surnames, cemetery records, family photos, history of Door County towns, maps and family histories. An ongoing project involves adding more gravestone photos from all county cemeteries.

Visitors and new members are welcome; meeting times are on the website at
