1992-1993 was the first program year that the genealogy group in Bend decided to use the Bend Genealogical Society name and adopted our familiar Juniper tree logo.

We are excited this year to celebrate our 25th program year as the Bend Genealogical Society. We are as enthusiastic about genealogy today as all our honored predecessors were. Come join us for a year of memories and new beginnings for the next 25 years.
