The Toledo Area Genealogical Society (formerly the Northwestern Ohio Genealogical Society) is a non-profit organization established for the purpose of encouraging research in genealogy, history and biography. We provide a friendly environment where people can gather to socialize and learn. TAGS cooperates with the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, in promotion of their Local History and Genealogy Department, and does joint projects with other local organizations.
