Happy 30th Birthday WCGS!!!

It was April 1981 when all the craziness started and the Williamson County Genealogical Society was formed. WCGS is still going strong after 30 years but we need all who have an interest in Genealogy and especially Williamson County History to support the WCGS sites.  We are now on:

The Williamson County Genealogical Society was founded in April 1981 and is a non-profit organization.

WCGS was formed for the following purposes: 
  • To create and advance an interest in genealogy.
  • To aid individuals in their genealogical research and compilation of family histories.

To assist with these goals the society is dedicated to: 
  • Gathering and preserving genealogical and historical data
  • Maintaining a genealogical research library through purchases, contributions, donations and exchanges of books, periodicals, microfilm and electronic media;
  • Publishing a quarterly periodical entitled "The Chisholm Trail"; 
  • Offering educational opportunities in the form of lectures, classes, and seminars.
