Welcome to the GSBC!

The Genealogical Society of Bergen County (GSBC), NJ is a non-profit society founded in 1973. Our purpose is to: assist those researching their family heritage; assist those who are preserving information about the families and genealogical records of the greater Bergen County area; and, to offer educational and research assistance to all those interested in genealogical research. (Learn about the history of the GSBC, here.)

We offer an exciting calendar of program events — including hands-on workshops, computer classes, films, roundtable discussions, and lectures featuring renown genealogy and local history experts. We hope to see you soon!
