Please help support our many projects. All transcribers are volunteers, but material (research materials we donate to the Troy Public Library Genealogy room), computer equipment and annual web hosting all cost us money.  All dues go 100% to our project costs. Dues are only $10/year (feel free to donate more!) Please make checks payable to “TIGS” and send to our treasurer.  Print and send membership:  Join TIGS

The Troy Irish Genealogy Society has its own mailing list on RootsWeb. The list is used for genealogical purposes, but it also serves as a virtual meeting place.

If you are interested in joining the mailing list, go here:

If you live locally, we invite you to attend a meeting.
