Society: Chaparral Genealogical, and Library

Recommended Posts

     On May 4, 1972, a group of seven women led by Bille Mae Brautigam Hardee,  decided there was a need in the Northwestern Harris County and Southwestern Montgomery County area for a genealogical society.  They were brought together by a common interest in family history and they all lived in and around the Tomball/Magnolia area. This became home base for the group.  The name given to their new organization was the Labor of Love Genealogical Society.
     Within a few months, the Society was up and running.  The first formal Society meeting was held on September 18, 1972 at the Tomball Branch of the Harris County Library.  The forty-seven individuals who joined prior to December 1, 1972 were given charter member status.
      In September of 1974, the Society was renamed Chaparral Genealogical Society.  During this time the Society began publishing its quarterly, "The Roadrunner."  The Roadrunner contained genealogical records and was published from 1974 to 1991; back copies are available for review at the library.  Chaparral has published many books of records for the Tomball and Montgomery County area including:  The Klein Funeral Home Records to 1900, and Census and Marriage records of Northwest Harris and Southwest Montgomery Counties.
