Welcome to our website!
The Genealogical Society of Kendall County, Texas was founded in 1981. We are located in Boerne in the beautiful Hill Country of Texas. Our purpose is to promote the study of family research, to collect and preserve biographical data and records of the people of the community and their ancestors, to build and maintain a genealogical library, and to offer programs of genealogical and historical interest to our members and to the general public.
We invite you to explore our new website. Be sure to look at our library. We have reference material for the entire United States in addition to an excellent collection of Kendall County publications. If you have family ties in Kendall County look at our First Families of Kendall County. It is an excellent way to document your family
