FSGS Announces Preservation Award to BCGS!

Presentation Award
The Bay County Genealogical Society has just been awarded the first Preservation Award presented by the Florida State Genealogical Society! This site is recognized as the best of 67 county genealogical sites in Florida in terms of protecting, preserving, and indexing its historical records. WOW!


News Flash!
We have just recently added a major new feature to this Web site: A Research Portal to the Known Genealogical Resources of Bay County, Florida! It is designed to facilitate access with a single, logically arranged tool to pick up the trail of your ancestor in Bay County records. Please take a tour and let us know if you find it helpful. Check it our at Bay County Research Gateway

About Us:
The Bay County Genealogical Society is dedicated to the advancement, education, and promotion of family history research, and to the preservation and distribution of historical records related to Bay County, Florida, and surrounding areas. We operate in accordance with our Bylaws, which you can read here here.

Meetings:
We welcome everyone who is interested in family history and genealogy, whether you are a Society member or not. Meetings are held the third Saturday of each month at 1:00 p.m. in the conference room of the new Bay County Public Library at 898 West 11th Street, Panama City, Florida. (Exception: meetings are NOT held in July and August.)  The Board of Directors meets at the same location at 10:00 a.m. also on the third Saturday of the month. All BCGS members are welcome, and we particularly invite those who may wish to participate in any of our community programs. Check out our Upcoming Events page.

Membership and Dues:
Membership in this organization, with voting rights and the right to hold office, is open to anyone without restriction of race, color, creed or sex who has a continuing interest in genealogy and whose membership dues are current. Annual dues are $20.00 for individuals, $20.00 for families and $10.00 for students; payable in December for the year following. Please join us. Download a Membership Application Form here.

Your Society is on the move!
We are one of the first societies in Florida to post a county-wide burial index online; one of the first to post our newsletters online, and one of the first to implement a First Families program. Additional new initiatives are planned to increase the Society's contributions to the preservation, indexing, and dissemination of genealogically important Bay County records. Several of these are are already underway and are continually adding real content to our web site. Learn more on our Ongoing Projects page.
