Library of Genealogy and Local History

Society members man and support the Library of Genealogy and Local History, an off-site department of the main county library, where members of the public can use to do genealogical and local history research at no charge. Volunteer librarians are always on duty to provide expert assistance.


Society meetings are held the fourth Saturday of each month at the main county library, 2 p.m., with a variety of speakers presenting educational programs throughout the year. Visitors are always welcomed, and refreshments are served.


Shirley Fuller is the society's President and Ellen Wheeler is the Program Chairman. If anyone has an idea for a program, please let us know. Suggestions may be mailed to the Van Zandt County Genealogical Society, P.O. Box 1388, Canton, TX 75103, or by emailing the Society.
