Records Center Visitors Rules

Your request for data from the records should be specific: one name/family per query.
Fees are set by the County and State (fee schedule available). SASE requested.

Extensive research by a professional is available upon request.

The Records Center has a "Swap" Program, trading copy work for your documented information.
This has enabled building an extensive collection of data
concerning early families of Gonzales County.
We accept printed or GEDCOM material.
(Please indicate which Genealogy Program was used to create the GEDCOM.)

We are home to many identified PHOTOS, and many unidentified.

The Records Center offers much to the researcher,
whether it be history, genealogy, architecture, social customs,
or any interest that requires a knowledge of the past.
