Living. Growing. Prospering.
CLEAA is composed of graduates from either or both of the City of Douglasville Police Department or Douglas County Sheriff's Department's Citizens Law Enforcement Academy classes. We proudly serve and assist all law enforcement to serve and protect Douglas County citizens by assisting them with their various community programs and projects, and raising funds to aid them in purchasing specialized equipment. It is our way to show our appreciation for what they do for our community every day.
Rhett Williamson had dreamed for years of having a society of individuals who wanted to learn about their families. He placed ads in the local newspapers and talked of this wherever he went. Eventually, in January of 1998, 16 people gathered at the Douglas County Library to learn more and agreed to form such a group. A steering committee was formed and they came up with a name and proposed constitution.
On March 5, 1998 the first meeting was held and the constitution adopted. With the election of Irene Jackson as President, Sandra Whittington as Vice President, and Rebecca Collins as Secretary/Treasurer, the society was off and running. Thirty one people (our charter members) were present for this meeting, the official birth of the Douglas County Genealogical Society.
Now in our second decade, we are still excited about finding and proving our family trees. Over half of the charter members are still active and willingly assist any new members who need help researching their family lines.
Many of the members are on the the Douglas County Cemetery Commission and have given freely of their time to transcribing the names from these markers in an attempt to make ancestral research easier and available online.
The Club meets the 3rd Thursday of each month at 6 p.m. at Logan's Restaurant, Chapel Hill Road. Visitors and New Members are always welcome!

Douglas County has 3 outdoor courts that we want to help repair and make safe for basketball play for the youth.
