PROGRAM MEETINGS


Each month from September to May, BGS offers opportunities for learning the HOW TO of researching family history, from program meetings on the 2nd Tuesday of the month to smaller interest groups and specialized workshops.

BGS has a variety of types of meetings - some are in-person-only at Williamson Hall, some are Zoom-only, and some are hybrid, meaning you can attend in-person at Williamson Hall or on ZOOM.

When travel in the winter is hazardous, BGS usually has Zoom-only meetings.
