Wanted: Concho Valley Pioneers

SAGHS is building a file of Concho Valley pioneers, and we want to include your pioneer ancestor! Jan Thomas, our new Pioneer Certificate Manager, will help with Pioneer Certificate applications; contact her (email). Pioneer Certificate assistance is always available at our weekly "Research Assistance & More", Wednesdays at the WTC, 2 to 4 p.m.

Summer Research at the WTC

Summer months are ideal for genealogy research, especially at the West Texas Collection. Suzanne Campbell, Head of the WTC, invites Concho Valley genealogists to avail themselves of the many resources from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Summer hours at WTC are inforce now.  With the relaxed atmosphere of the ASU campus during summer sessions, visitor parking is easier to find, and after 1 p.m., visitors can park anywhere in the parking lot. Just take Dena Dr. to Rosemont and turn right into the parking lot fronting the Houston Harte Univterity center. Click HERE for a map to the WTC. Find it on the second floor.

Family Legends Needed!

Do you have a family myth, a celebrity connection, or odd family story you’d like proved or disproved? Susan Ball, author of the "Family Myth Busters" series in the Stalkin’ Kin, would like to research your story for upcoming issues. Susan is willing to tackle most any submission that involves research in the 1800s or 1900s. Wouldn't you like to know the real story? Contact Susan with your family legend by EMAIL (click to send)
