Ancestry Searchers
Genealogical Society

  
The Texas City Ancestry Searchers was founded in 1976 for the purpose of stimulating interest in genealogy and promoting mutual assistance in genealogical research.

  
Meetings
Meetings are held every month, on the third Wednesday, at 1:00 p.m.,

At each meeting, there will be an interesting presentation on a subject of genealogical
interest, followed by refreshments and a short business meeting.
