• Bell County
    Genealogical Society

    Welcome to the Bell County Genealogical Society (BCGS) website.  Be sure to explore our Research Links tab for information about local research facilities and tips that might be helpful to you, and visit our Events tab for information about various upcoming genealogy-related conferences and workshops. 


    We invite you to attend a BCGS meeting.  Our meetings are held on the third Tuesday of each month, 6:30 - 8:00 p.m., in the McLane Room (third floor) at Temple Public Library, 100 West Adams Avenue, in Temple.  Each meeting includes a program of interest to genealogists.  While our focus is on Bell County, we do not limit our programs or discussion to topics about the area.  A program schedule is available at our Meetings tab.  


    Our society is for everyone, from the beginner to the advanced genealogist, and we hope you will consider becoming a member.  A link to our membership form is available at the Join tab.

    About Us

    BCGS, formed in 1991 under the Texas Non-Profit Corporation Act, promotes genealogical research and preservation of genealogical records to perpetuate the memory of our ancestors and their contributions to the cultural heritage of our country.  BCGS is a partner society of Texas State Genealogical Society.  Locally, BCGS supports
    Temple Public Library.


    The society meets on the third Tuesday of each month, 6:30 - 8:00 p.m., in the McLane Room (third floor) at Temple Public Library, 100 West Adams Avenue,
    in Temple.  Each meeting opens with an introduction of new members and
    visitors followed by a general session and a speaker or activity of genealogical
    or historical interest.


    An elected Executive Board is the governing body of the society, and standing and special committees are appointed by the society's president.
