Welcome to the Bay Area Genealogical Society!



Although we are headquartered in Green Bay, Brown County Wisconsin, our society's mission encompasses all of the surrounding counties. Our society was founded in 1975 to educate people in genealogical research techniques and to make historical and genealogical material available to the general public. We locate and compile original materials and acquire donations of genealogical books and other materials including cemetery listings. In addition to Brown County, Wisconsin we also welcome researchers interested in the  surrounding counties of Calumet,Door, Kewaunee, Oconto, Outagamie and Shawano counties.
  We are pleased to hold several educational sessions throughout the year, currently online via Zoom. If you are interested in learning more about our events, see our calendar page for more  information.
 Brown County is one of Wisconsin's original two counties, originally spanning the entire eastern half of the state.when created in 1818, so the area is rich in resources for you to discover.
 The society  also has a Facebook page where you can ask questions and seek help. Find us at Bay Area Genealogical Society on Facebook
