Bear Creek Genealogical Society

Welcome to the Bear Creek Genealogical Society.  Our society meets on the second Thursday of each month at the Bear Creek Community Center, 3055 Bear Creek Dr., Houston, TX 77084.  We have approximately 40 members and hold our meeting from 1 to 2:30 PM.  All genealogical researchers, whether novice or expert, are welcome to attend.  Attire is casual.  We also have several bus trips per year, departing from and returning to the Bear Creek Community Center.  Our most popular trip has been to the Clayton Library Center of Houston Public Library, one of the top genealogical libraries in the country.  We look forward to seeing you.  For further information, contact Gary Tober, President, 281-398-0333 or Tom Woltz, Vice-President, 832-754-2875.  Click here for a membership application.  Annual dues are $15.

Society Announcements

On  Thursday January 8, Amanda Hayes will present "Our Ancestors and the Law," showing us how the laws of each generation affected our ancestors and how this can help us discover additional facts.  The meeting will be at the usual time, 1 P.M. at Bear Creek Community Center.

On Thursday December 11 we will have our holiday meeting.  This will be a "Show and Tell," where members present items of interest.  Contact
Tom Woltz if you wish to make a presentation.  Also, this will be a potluck lunch or snack.  Bring a plate.  

On Thursday November 13 we will spend the day at Clayton Library.  This trip will replace our regular November meeting.  We will assemble at Bear Creek Community Center at 9:15 AM and leave for the library at 9:30.  We should be back to the center around 4.  This trip will be by carpool rather than bus.  Some of us will volunteer to drive to Clayton.
