We are delighted that you have found the Washington County (of Texas) Genealogical Society. Our goal is to use this site to help researchers discover their past in Washington County.

The purpose and mission of the Washington County Genealogical Society is to promote interest in family history and in genealogical research. With this in mind, much of the focus of the Society is on transcribing burials within the county, helping to maintain Washington County cemeteries, and in assisting researchers with burial locations. In addition, part of the on-going effort includes writing and publishing  histories of these cemeteries.

Let us know how we can help you.
