Bucks County Genealogical Society Journal

The Journal contains original articles and historic information about Bucks County, with an emphasis on genealogy and local history.  From 1998 through 2009, The Journal was published by the Bucks County Genealogical Society as a twenty-eight page, saddle-stapled booklet.  When the BCGS was dissolved in 2013, it donated its research library and the rights to its publications to the Richland Library Company. The Journal has been superseded by The Journal: A Magazine of History and Genealogy.
