Welcome!  And thanks for your interest!!

We are the West Houston Area Genealogy Society, but we usually just call ourselves WHAGS.  Legally we're a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, but our real purpose is helping each other achieve our genealogy goals, whatever those goals may be.

So, whether you're a curious newbie just starting out, or an experienced expert, we can help you with your efforts. We offer many ways to learn...

  • Monthly presentations by experts in their fields;

  • Special Interest Groups (SIGs) that gather folks who share a more focused interest in various aspects of research;

  • Members Helping Members sessions for casual small-group chats, even 1-on-1, on a limitless variety of topics;

  • A monthly newsletter with articles that teach new skills, report on members' successes, and more;

  • Our website that keeps you up-to-date on events and scheduling, resource links of all kinds, local contact information, and back issues of newsletters;

  • WHAGS Relative Finder page on FamilySearch showing how you may be related to other WHAGS members; 

  • and, well, so much more!


We do hope you'll consider joining us, becoming an important part of our society, and help us to help each other. At any time just click on the "Join Us" button at the top or bottom of the page to find a membership application. Individual membership is only $20 per year, and family memberships are a bargain at $30.  It's probably the smallest, and possibly the best, investment you'll make in your research!
