The books listed below are all publications of Matagorda County Genealogical Society and its members. Permission has been given to do lookups. If there is a link for the title of the book, the book is still in print and can be purchased from the MCGS.

Please remember that these people are volunteers who are donating their time to help you. Some work full-time and their volunteer time is limited, so be patient if they can't get right back to you. Only ask for two or three names when requesting the lookup. Be sure to thank them whether or not they find anything for you.
