Midwest Historical and Genealogical Society organizes special interest groups as the need arises. At the present we offer a certificate to researchers who can prove ancestry to have been in Sedgwick County between February 26, 1867 and December 31, 1880. Additional information.

Midwest Historical and Genealogical Society recently started an Afro-American Interest Group. The first two meetings were held on Saturday, December 15, 2012 and the following January 19th at 1:00 pm.
The purpose is to encourage historical and genealogical study of families of any ethnic group with special emphasis on Afro-Americans. This informal group will seek to learn more of the history and factors within the family stories we have been told.  We will demonstrate how to research your family tree with the goal of discovering and understanding your family history. The discussions will include a variety of methods, including exploring public records, interviewing older relatives and preserving information.
Join us and you may become your family historian.
