Williamson County (TX) Genealogical Society


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.

Our annual member share event!  (Monthly Meetings)
7:00 pm to 9:00 pm
Round Rock Library, 216 E Main Street, Round Rock, TX 78664 Room A
 The November meeting is our annual member share event! Join us as we discuss current breakthroughs and interesting genealogy tidbits!  If you would like to share something interesting for a maximum of 10 minutes, please contact President, John Marostica. 
Also at the November meeting, WCGS will hold a book “donation” sale.There will be a table with books that have been donated or deaccessioned by the library due to wear and tear, or duplication. We will hold a “donation” sale which means that the items can be yours for a donation of your choice. A suggested donation price will be posted but no one is going to know if you put in more or less in the jar! Please support the WCGS genealogy collection by taking a book or magazine and leaving a donation! We will be taking cash (no credit cards) so plan ahead and bring a few bucks to the November meeting!
