Welcome!

 
WCGS meets the third Thursday of each month, except August and December. Meetings are held at the Round Rock Public Library, 216 East Main Street, Round Rock, Texas in Meeting Room A, 7:30-9:00 pm. Social time is from 7:00-7:30 pm. The WCGS board meets from 6-7pm in the same room.

WCGS is a partner with the Round Rock Public Library. The RRPL houses and maintains our joint collection of genealogical materials. Please visit their website to view the catalog and to remotely access subscription databases with your library card.

We would love to have you join us! We hold ten regular meetings each year, host an annual day-long genealogy Saturday event, hold genealogy classes and are involved in special projects. We sponsor a DNA Special Interest Group that meets throughout the year. We publish ten issues of our newsletter, "The Roundup," and four issues of our quarterly publication, "The Chisholm Trail," each year.

Learn about a cool new tool for easy chromosome mapping.

“Seth will lead us through DNA Painter which provided a user-friendly online tool for Chromosome mapping. Chromosome mapping allows you to pinpoint which of your ancestors particular DNA segments came from and allows for easier connections with found cousins. The website is dnapainter.com if you would like to take a preview.”
