Welcome.
The Whittier Area Genealogical Society (WAGS) was established on May 16, 1981 and currently has over 200 members. Regular General Meetings with a guest speaker are held at 1:00 p.m. on the third Saturday of each month throughout the year and are open to the public. Before the General Meeting, the Morning Class, a general instructional class begins at 10:30 a.m.  The Beginner's Workshop, a small, personalized genealogical help class, also meets at 10:30 a.m. These last two classes do not meet June, July, August, and December.
