Welcome to the Bartlesville Genealogical Society

The goal of the Bartlesville Genealogical Society is to promote and encourage the common interest in family genealogy and history among our members.


The July program will be a series of short demonstrations of several unusual or unused sites to assist our members’ genealogical research.

Included are:
PastPerfect Museum Software shows public collections that are online across the U.S.

ArchiveGrid searches various archives, libraries, etc. for manuscripts and other primary source

FamilySearch Labs has a new full text search capability that is very useful.

The Community History Archive provides digital access to local historical content.

The Bureau of Land Management federal land conveyance records from 1788 to the present.

Come join us to learn new ways to tell our ancestors’ stories.

The monthly General Meetings will be a “Hybrid” meeting. We will have an in-person meeting in Conference Room C (main floor) at the Bartlesville Public Library. We will also provide Zoom access to the meeting.

The meeting will begin at 7:00 pm.

If you will be attending via Zoom, please register in advance using the link below.

Ask a Genealogist

If you have a “brick wall” challenge, want “fresh eyes” to look at a research problem, or want to start your genealogical research, you may want to submit an Ask a Genealogist inquiry.

You may submit a question at any time during the month on the Ask A Genealogist page. A BGS member will contact you by telephone or email.
