Welcome to BAGHS!

Brandon Area Genealogical & Historical Society

About Us

The Greater Brandon Genealogical Society was formed in the fall of 1995 by Tom and the late Jean Smith, a Brandon couple who, at that time, had been doing genealogy for some 20 years.  The Smiths wanted to share their interest and knowledge of genealogy with others in their local community. In 2003, the society changed its name to the Brandon Area Genealogical and Historical Society.  In July 2003, the society welcomed its 100th member!


Our Purpose

  1. To promote an interest in genealogy and family history.

  2. To encourage and instruct members in the performance of genealogical research and promote the maintenance of quality genealogical standards and source documentation.

  3. To promote adherence to the accepted standards for the use and care of genealogical records.

  4. To help preserve public and private records and artifacts and work to ensure their accessibility for genealogical and historical purposes.

  5. To contribute records as appropriate to genealogical and historical societies as well as to libraries.

  6. To publish genealogical and historical information in a regularly issued newsletter and in any other publications as directed by the membership.

  7. To maintain an informative website for current members, attract new membership, and provide query availability.
