What is Los Bexarenos

What is Los Bexareños Genealogical Society?

Los Bexareños is an organization dedicated to Hispanic history and ancestral research.  The Society promotes public interest in history and genealogy through outreach and educational programs.  Members of the society consist of individuals from a variety of occupations and life pursuits (i.e. retirees, housewives, doctors, accountants and professional genealogists).  The main activity of the Society is family ancestral research.  Research that includes not only the family lineage,  but also the family history and how our ancestors responded to national forces and events.  How it was that we, their descendents find ourselves in this time and place.  How decisions made long ago affected our present lives and in many cases directly account for our existence.

The Library is manned by volunteers on Saturdays, except the 1st Saturday of the month. The hours are 10:00am to 2:00pm.
