Each month from September to May, BGS offers several methods of 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.


BGS MEMBERS: All monthly meetings, workshops or interest groups are free for members, whether attending In-Person or on ZOOM. 

NON-MEMBERS:  In-Person attendance at any meeting is free.  

NON-MEMBERS:  For monthly meetings with professional speakers, who charge us fees, the cost to attend on ZOOM is $10.00. We many charge a small amount for Zoom attendance for non-members at other programs. Thank you so much for your support.
