About Us
The Rapid City Society for Genealogical Research, Inc. began in 1966 with a small group of people interested in finding out about all their ancestors.

Our goals include giving our members help and encouragement in researching their family trees, buying genealogy books and microfilm to be placed in the Rapid City Public Library, and preserving and publishing as much history and genealogy of the Black Hills area as possible. We publish a quarterly, The Black Hills Nuggets, to which members and friends contribute articles of interest. We often have speakers on different aspects of genealogy at our meetings and we also sponsor a genealogy seminar from time to time.


The Society meets the third (3rd) Thursday of each month at 7:00 PM at Faith Lutheran Church, 17 Indiana St., Rapid City across from South Middle School. We do not meet in the month of December. Visitors are welcome to attend.

A brief business meeting is held followed by coffee and cookies. A genealogical educational component and round table discussion are the highlight of the meeting.

New members are always welcome. For more information, contact us at

The RCSGR is an affiliate of the South Dakota Genealogical Society.
