About Us

The San Antonio Genealogical and Historical Society was chartered in 1959. We are a 501(c)(3) organization with a mission to teach and promote genealogical and historical research, publish and preserve records, and increase awareness of genealogy and history. We maintain an outstanding library of over 15,000 books, publish an award-winning semiannual journal and society books, and conduct educational seminars, classes, and workshops. In addition, through our First Families of Bexar County Program, we recognize descendants of people who were in Bexar County in 1850 or before.
