NEW! Century Families of Williams County – CFWC
We announced our newest lineage society, Century Families of Williams County, at the June Banquet. WCGS is very excited to offer this new lineage society to our members. And the excitement is growing as there are already several members that are working on their CFWC application. I encourage everyone to start working on your application and be one of the first to be inducted into CFWC in June 2019!
Any member of WCGS who is a direct descendant of one or more individuals who settled within the area designates as Williams County between January 1, 1861 and 100 year prior to current year is welcome to apply for membership of Century Families of Williams County.
