Its mission is to encourage study and research in genealogy and local history.

The Society has an active fund-raising campaign, including Spring and Fall Seminars, and duplicate book sales on Ebay. All monies are used to pay for the Society’s educational programs and for the purchase and donation of books and periodicals to the Genealogy & Local History Collection of the Carlsbad City Georgina Cole Library.

As the Society is a registered with the IRS as a 501(c)(3) organization, contributions made to the NSDCGS may be income tax-deductible. If you would like to support the Society outside of membership, please consider a small donation.
