Membership in the WCGS is open to anyone interested in tracing their Chamberlain ancestors or just learning more about the Chamberlain surname, its history, and varied spellings down through the years.

  • The Chamberlain Key, a quarterly newsletter, featuring the latest genealogy and lineage information, research tips and new discoveries, and much more, all pertaining to the Chamberlain lines.
  • Archival material from research collections, historical documents, and other resources, dating back to the 1890s.
  • Perhaps most importantly, an opportunity for you to share with fellow members what you have discovered about your Chamberlain ancestors and to learn what others have discovered.
