Genealogy Support Group


The Fenton Genealogy Support Group serves as a support to both experienced and amateur researchers by acting as an educational offering our members.

Meetings feature invaluable lectures, discussions and are an excellent way to become familiar with the Fenton History Center’s impressive collection of resources.

The Support Group meets the last Wednesday of each month at the Fenton History Center in the historic Hall House building, located at 73 Forest Avenue in Jamestown, New York. Doors open at 6, and the meeting begins at 6:30 with a brief business meeting followed by a program. Program topics and speakers are subject to change.

From its extensive library of publications pertaining to Jamestown, Chautauqua County, and other Northeastern United States – to its extensive selection of pre-compiled family files and digital work stations – the research center is a dream come true to anyone interested in tracing their family tree and to anyone who enjoys conducting historical research.

No research project is too big or too small to tackle with the help of our friendly and knowledgeable research staff and volunteers.
