You do not need to be researching ancestors in Story County, Iowa, to join SCGS.  Most of our members do not have local ancestors!  We're a group of people who enjoy genealogy, the thrill of the ancestral chase, learning new ways of researching, and sharing our discoveries with kindred genealogists.  We are a blend of beginners, intermediate, and seasoned researchers.  We love to "talk genealogy" and may be able to assist you in your research.  Come join us.
