The primary purpose of the Society is educational. To this end, it shall strive to provide educational courses, workshops, and seminars to the membership and public at large on methods and standards of genealogical research; stimulate interest in the recording of family history; establish and maintain a library for genealogical research in the Central Brevard area; publish materials of genealogical interest, and work with other organizations with similar goals.

Please check our calendar for future activities including meetings, programs, and seminars.

We also want our members and viewers to be able to research for Brevard County information and to enhance their family tree. Currently, we are revising our site to organize, consolidate and expand our current content.

You can benefit greatly by being or becoming a member of our society. As a member, you will also help ensure the society will be able to provide future programs and workshops to help you extend your family history.
