The association runs in the mayor Stroof house the Beueler Central Office for Family Research.

This has all church books of the "historical" Beuel parishes from 1652 to 1809 - Vilich (catholic), Küdinghoven (catholic) and Oberkassel (catholic and evangelic) - as well as lists of the registry office Vilich/Beuel 1810-1875. The entire stock is available in original copies, bound to books, as well as in cartography (machine copies), the latter also digitized (DVD).

The collection also includes the (only so far published) local family book "Küdinghoven" (with Holtorf, Limperich, Ramersdorf) as well as all(!) so far published local or family books of the whole Bonn region, some of them also as DVD.

Members of the Bonn district group of the West German Society for Genealogy offer different kinds of help in the Bürgermeister-Stroof-Haus by appointment, be it the reading or translation of old documents, be it assistance in the search for certain documents or general information on how to get started in genealogy or family research.
