About BCGS

Bond County County Genealogical Society was formed in 1981 by a small group dedicated to tracing ancestry of their families and preserving documents to help others. We currently have over 100 subscribers and a library with over 1000 volumes, microfilms, and other records of Bond County and surrounding areas.
