The Burnet County Genealogical Society(BCGS) supports the Elizabeth Van Gorkom Genealogical Center and meets monthly at the Herman Brown Free Library. Please check the library’s current calendar for meeting dates and time. Learn more about BCGS on their Web page.
A dedicated group of knowledgeable volunteers from BCGS meet at the research center most Fridays. They maintain the Burnet County history and surname files, answer queries, and assist researchers.
Queries made by mail or email are answered for a fee, based on the number of copies and postage. Research is limited to the library’s resources, including but not limited to Burnet County History, Vol. 1 & Vol. 2, Burnet County Cemetery Records, 1852-1892, the Research Center’s surname files, and Burnet County newspapers, if an approximate date is given. There is no fee for obituary searches.
