IN THE BEGINNING ...
The Morris Area Genealogy Society (MAGS) was founded in 1988 to bring together people interested in family history and genealogy. MAGS had its beginnings when Diane Solomon, then head of the North Jersey History and Genealogy Center (NJHGC) of the Morristown & Morris Township Library (MMTL), became aware that patrons were interested in the formation of a genealogical society. In the fall of 1984, Melda Shippey and Linnea Foster were asked to meet with members of the Genealogical Society of the West-Fields. The Westfield members were generous in sharing their experiences in starting their organization. Although there was considerable interest in forming a society in the mid-1980s, the decision was made to wait until a meeting room in the proposed addition to the Library was completed.
