The Boone County Genealogical Society (BCGS) in Indiana was established in 1997 by a small group of individuals.
Our Mission Statement: The chief purposes are to investigate, collect, record, publish and deposit in libraries and archives, the genealogical and historical materials of Indiana, especially those pertaining to Boone County, Indiana, and the adjoining counties; and to educate members in the use of these and other reference materials in preparing and publishing genealogical materials and family lineages.
The Boone County Genealogical Society (BCGS) maintains a partnership with Boone County libraries. Meetings are held at the Lebanon Public Library, Sullivan Munce Cultural Center (Zionsville), Thorntown Public Library or the Hussey-Mayfield Library (Zionsville). Our monthly meetings are always open to the public and are held the 4th Tuesday of each month, except July and December.
There are several ways in which you may participate in the BCGS:
- Become a member! Annual dues are only $15.00 per year
- Attend meetings. This is an opportunity to network with fellow genealogists who share the same interests as you. Several programs are offered throughout the year on a variety of genealogical and family history topics.
- Volunteer! Cemetery restoration, indexing, and many other projects are available as volunteer opportunities.
- Make a tax deductible donation to the Society.
- Contribute information about Boone County's history, persons, places, things or your family history for publication in our newsletter, It's All Relatives!.
