Texas State Genealogical Society – Annual 2010 Meeting

April 14, 2010 by · Leave a Comment 

The Lufkin Daily News has a reminder out that the Texas State Genealogical Society will be holding its annual meeting in Waco, from November 4 through November 6. That’s Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

It’s being called “Bridging Generations” and it will also mark the 50th Anniversary of the Texas State Genealogical Society. It’s being hosted by the Central Texas Genealogical Society and in addition to celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the TSGS, it’s kind of a celebration of the new West Waco Library and Genealogy Center. The genealogy collection will have twice as much space as it currently has in the main library, among other resources.

The article mentions it as an opportunity for genealogists from outside of Waco to visit the new (and hopefully open) West Waco Library and Genealogy Center, the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame, and the Texas Collection at Baylor University, along with other area attractions. The Texas Collection at Baylor University features quite a few things of interest to genealogists in the state, including collections involving Central Texas history, African American and Hispanic history and culture in Texas, and Texans in the military.
