Belton, Bell County, Texas

Native Texans Michael and Nancy Kelsey of Belton, Texas, are interested in local history and genealogy.  Michael is retired from Temple Public Library in Temple, Texas, where he worked to establish the local history and genealogy collection.  Nancy is a retired Registered Nurse. 

They are currently working on their thirteenth book, the sixth focused on the history of Bell County.  Of their other earlier books, two include abstracts from newspapers published in Texas; one includes abstracts from Masonic records across Texas; two include abstracts from newspapers published in Alabama; and two include abstracts from newspapers that covered much of the southern United States.

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 choice for those unable to visit the area or anyone looking for assistance with their research.
