The Bastrop Public Library is unable to assist in genealogy research at this time.  We apologize for the inconvenience.


The Bastrop Advertiser has been digitally reproduced and is now available online at the Portal to Texas History website.  The 1854-1975 issues are currently available and later years are being added.  With the paper on the web, patrons can now search remotely for their information.  Searches can be done by keyword or date.  Funding for this project was provided by the Tocker Foundation.
