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 our history here.)

We offer an exciting calendar of ongoing programs and 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!
