Over the years, Texas natives Michael and Nancy Kelsey of Belton have collected a wealth of local history and genealogy information.  The Kelsey Collection includes books, documents, and photos from numerous sources. 


They have published thirteen books.  Six of these books focus on the history of Bell County, Texas.  Their other books include abstracts of articles of genealogical interest from newspapers published in Texas and Alabama  and that served readers across the southern United States, and abstracts of Texas Masonic records.  They will begin selling their latest book Empresario’s Son:  E. S. C. Robertson of Salado in June 2018.  Information about each book is available at the Books tab. 

The Kelsey's knowledge of Central Texas history and families, experience using various local history and genealogy repositories, and dedication to complete and accurate research make them an excellent source for those looking for assistance with their research in Bell and surrounding counties.
