Welcome to our site!

The Hudson Genealogical Study Group, founded in 1986, is a chapter of the Ohio Genealogical Society.  While we are primarily concerned with the area in and near the City of Hudson in Summit County, Ohio, we also want to assist and encourage all who are researching their Family Tree to improve the accuracy and quality of the information in their tree. Membership in this chapter is open to all persons with genealogical interests. Our programs cover a wide range of genealogical programs from the beginning genealogist to the expert.

Do you have an IRA ?

If you have an IRA, 401K or similar, don't forget that there are requirements for withdrawing those funds. 
If you are age 72 or older, IRS rules require you to take Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) each year from your tax deferred retirement accounts.  A QCD is a direct transfer of funds from your IRA, payable directly to a qualified charity, as described in the QCD provision in the Internal Revenue Code.

Hudson Genealogical Study Group (HGSG) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and operates according to its bylaws.  All donations are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
If you follow the rules and have money sent directly from your financial institution to HGSG, you may not need to pay income tax on the withdrawal and HGSG can receive the full benefit of the withdrawal.
