The Brazos Genealogist

"The Brazos Genealogist" was the official quarterly of the Brazos Genealogical Association.
The Brazos Genealogical Association was formed in 1978 by researchers in Brazos County.  The group met periodically and in 1979 began publishing a newsletter called "The Advertiser".

"The Brazos Genealogical Advertiser" (the name was changed to "The Brazos Genealogist" in Vol. XI, No. 2,
Spring 1990 - ed.) was begun in June of 1979 as a bi-monthly newsletter and was used as the
meeting notice for every other meeting for the first two or three years. At that time its contents
had more current information about members, research hints and ideas.  By 1984 the Advertiser had
become a quarterly and its contents had become primarily Brazos County records and information,
preparing for the Sesquicentennial Celebration of Texas in 1986.

In 2008 the group decided that it was no longer possible to publish a quarterly and the Genealogist ended it's run with Vol 29, Nos 3-4.   In 2013, with membership numbers declining,  The Brazos Genealogical Association, which met in the evenings decided to merge with the Texas Research Ramblers, another Brazos County organization which met in the mornings.

The Texas Research Ramblers were formed in 2005 as primarily a group to educate new researchers.  It is now the primary Genealogical Association in Brazos County.  There is a link to their website at the top in the links bar.
