COVID 19 Information

                The governor of Kansas issued a mandatory wearing of a mask in public buildings and where 6 foot social distancing can’t be met to start on Friday July 3, 2020. The Brown County Commissioners on July 6, 2020 decided to NOT follow the mandate. We are going to let the public decide if they want to wear a mask in the genealogy library. We will NOT be having any meetings in July, August or September. At this point in time we will not be having any programs the remainder of the year.  We hope to be back to having programs in April of 2021. Thank you for your continued support.


                Donations are how we keep our door opened at The Brown County Genealogical Society. Fund raising opportunities are changing and we no longer have many options. We do NOT receive any city, county, state or federal funding. We do this on our own with the help of our generous donors. Due to Covid 19 things are getting harder for everyone and we feel it too. We are staffed by volunteers and we are very thankful for their time and energy into keeping things in order at the library. We are no longer doing the ice cream socials and auctions are few and far between. We do not have the capability to accept credit cards or Paypal BUT we have set up our Facebook page to accept *Facebook pay if you use Facebook; of course we continue to accept checks, money orders and cash. We are a 501 ( c ) 3 non-profit organization. Thank you for your continued support. *Due to a few unforeseen circumstances it will be approximately August 1, 2020 before we have the setup complete BUT please give us LIKE on Facebook and follow for any upcoming events.
