About Us

Back in 2001, Carolyn Hellen was teaching a beginners genealogy class at the University Baptist Church and dreamed of a genealogy society in the Houston Texas Bay Area. She realized the only way to make this happen would be to have genealogy meetings in our own area. Later that summer, an organizational meeting was held at the University Baptist Church with enthusiastic people willing to join and serve as officers, thus was born the Bay Area Genealogy Society.

The above article was a summary from two of our Quarterly articles by Carole Varnado.

Past presidents were Carolyn Hellen from 2001 to 2003, Neil Miserandino 2003-2004, Ron Cox 2004-2005, Loren Martin 2005-2007, Resa Nichols Hennings 2007-2009, Tina Medlin-Chatham 2009-2011, Bill Mayo 2011-2013, Shirley Hoppe Lindquist 2013 to 2015, and Loren Martin 2015 to present.
