Welcome to BGS!

Beginning Genealogy Course
A four week course will start on Thursday, July 2, 2015 from 9:30 to Noon at the Central Brevard Library in Cocoa.  The class will meet each Thursday through July 23, 2015.  More information & registration is available here.

The primary purpose of the Brevard Genealogical Society is education of our membership and the public through training courses, workshops, and seminars on methods and standards of genealogical and historical research.

We try to stimulate interest in, and encourage the recording of family history, especially among young people.

We encourage the collection of genealogical and historical books and other materials by the Society, through donation and purchase, so they may be properly cataloged, cared for, and made available for all to use.

We exchange information through publications, group activities, or on a one-to-one basis.

We recognize the revolution in genealogical research where much of the research is now done on the Internet. We support the creation of local history files and indexes by our membership to be posted online to assist genealogists outside our area.

We try to coordinate research, publication, and collection of library materials by individuals and societies to reduce duplication.

And we maintain close liaison with other genealogical and historical organizations, local, nationwide and international, to reinforce our efforts toward common goals, and to avoid schedule conflicts.
