Genealogical Society of Marion County
GSMC Members Only Access

Members of the Genealogical Society of Marion County have access to numerous publications, databases, and indices which have limited availability elsewhere. It is our intention to continuously expand the research materials available to members, using publications from our library shelves, new research, and other sources.
We invite you to join us as a member and get access to material such as these examples:
Family Quest Journals:
Published quarterly, the journals are a member benefit. (The Family Quest Indexes are available in the Genealogy Resources tab.)
Note: As of the last quarter in 2020, GSMC is no longer publishing the Family Quest journals. We are publishing all information in GSMC's Member Only Access web site.
