Mid-Cities Genealogical Society


The Mid-Cities Genealogical Society was organized in June, 1978, and currently has more than 100 members, primarily from the communities of Hurst, Bedford, Euless and Irving, Texas.  We are a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation and a member of the Texas State Genealogical Society and the Federation of Genealogical Societies.
In addition to our monthly meetings we conduct one day seminars and occasional public help sessions.
