Brown County Genealogical Society

Alex Pruitt house many years ago in Brown County.

Welcome to our Website.



Brown County Genealogical Society was organized in 1986 to encourage the enjoyment and study of genealogy; to assist others in gathering their families’ genealogical information; to preserve and to publish material of historical and genealogical nature - all for educational purposes.  But we think of its purpose as fun, friends and research!

Member Events: 
   Member gatherings and field trips are focused on genealogy.  They may involve education/learning, research, collaboration, collecting/preserving/indexing materials or any combination of these.

Meeting Event Logistics:  
  Planning, preparation and leadership for events is on a volunteer basis.  The member who volunteers will select the topic or activity, location, and date/time for the meeting.  Our "home base" is the Brown County Public Library in Nashville, Indiana but meetings may occur in various locations - either inside or outside of Brown County.  Our regular meeting time is 1:00pm on the second Thursday of the month.

Board Meetings:   A three-member board handles the business, planning and directional needs of the organization.  Regular board meetings are held semi-annually.  Special meetings are held to address specific needs.
