Bell County Genealogical Society


The BCGS newsletter is published quarterly (January, April, July, and October).


​Bell County Genealogical Society (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.
