About Our Society & Library
    We are the Atascosa County Genealogical Society Library, Inc. Our not for profit Society is dedicated to collecting, documenting, preserving and disseminating our county history. Also, to foster education in genealogical research through Society meetings, workshops, seminars and "Show and Tell" sessions. We want to bring back the stories, living history and documents that have been filed away and forgotten. We want to research, organize and consolidate historical information of all types, and make it available in our library for our members and individuals with an interest in Atascosa county. We have an extensive collection of information on Texas and Atascosa county. The Atascosa County Genealogical Society Library is located in the town of Poteet, Atascosa county, Texas, due South of San Antonio and Bexar county Texas. We are staffed entirely by volunteers and our membership is open to anyone with an interest in genealogy.

    The building housing the library will be the Aigner - Mumme Memorial Building, established 1999. These two gentlemen have contributed greatly to Atascosa county and in making the Atascosa County Genealogical Society Library possible. Our Society will create and maintain a "Wall of Honor" in our library for outstanding achievements of our members and others within Atascosa county.

    Membership is open and all individuals are invited to become Active, Supporting or Business members of our Genealogical Society. We welcome visitors to our library and we are interested in receiving documents relating to Texas and our county genealogical history - family histories, memorabilia, books and memoirs, family group sheets, descendant charts, pedigree charts, pictures, public accounts and narratives, significant event documentation, birth-wedding-death certification, obituaries, wills, property deeds, Cemetery records, Funeral Home records, Revolutionary War, Texas Independence and Civil War records. Contact us for donation and recognition procedures.

    Our Genealogical Society Library is also seeking support by means of contributions of equipment and supplies. The primary needs are for a computer with internet access capability, flatbed color scanner, CDRW-ROM, office management software, genealogical software, publishing software and a color printer. Also, we are in need of office copiers, copy paper, typewriters and microfilm viewer/printers, postal meters, stamps and general office supplies. These items will greatly enhance our library's capability to provide services and research for our members and individuals of Atascosa county. Contributors will receive appropriate recognition.

    Research Requests are answered by a volunteer research team working out of the ACGSL Resource Center. Individuals seeking assistance with family history research in Atascosa county may submit Research Requests to the Society. Please note there may be a fee for this service.

    For those who desire professional assistance in accessing Atascosa county public records, the ACGSL maintains a roster of active searchers who are willing to undertake research on a fee-for-service basis. Contact must be made with these individuals directly as this is not an ACGSL service.

    Cemetery Transcriptions and recording headstone information services are available for all cemeteries within Atascosa county. Contact the Society for fees and ordering information.
