We are a non-profit, volunteer-powered corporation dedicated to collecting, preserving, and making available material on genealogy in the area of the falls of the Ohio River with an emphasis on Floyd, Clark, and Harrison Counties in southern Indiana.
We meet on the first Thursday of every month, excepting holidays, in the Elsa Strassweg Auditorium of the New Albany Floyd County Public Library, 180 West Spring Street, New Albany.
During the Covid crisis we have been holding meetings and presenting programs over Zoom on the first Thursday of every month.
First Families of Floyd, Clark, and Harrison Counties is an ongoing project of the Falls of the Ohio Genealogical Society which is designed to discover, honor, and preserve the memory of the tri-county pioneers. Membership in First Families is open to anyone proving direct descent from a settler living in the tri-county area prior to December 31, 1840. The project hopes to document the lives and contributions of some of the counties' early Native Americans and pioneer African Americans, women, immigrants, and children.
