West Texas Collection

Research at the WTC
Shannon Sturm, Head of the Ralph Chase West Texas Collection, invites Concho Valley genealogists to avail themselves of the many resources in the library from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. Beides the extensive collection of genealogy books and documents, there are historis sphotographs from the area, newspaper archives and the library edition of Ancestry.com available to visitors at no charge.
 
This repository and genealogical library is located on the 2nd floor of the Houston Harte Student Center on the Angelo State University campus. In the parking lot West of the Student Center, there are four visitor parking spots near the front entrance, and six visitor parking spots in the Southeast corner under the trees. After 1 p.m., visitors can park anywhere in the parking lot.  Phone: 325-942-2164  Website: WTC at ASU; Check closure dates:  Calendar 
 
SAGHS regularly purchases books and other genalogical publications, reviews them and then donates them to the WTC. We also donate materials given to the Society by individual donation or estates and often, members donate books. From January 2013 through December 2018, SAHGS has donated  514 titles, with more to follow. You can search for materials at WTC through the Porter Henderson library database RamCat:  https://phl.angelo.edu/vwebv/searchBasic 
 
SAGHS Volunteers meet  almost every Wednesday afternoon from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm in WTC to offer help and guidance to anyone who needs research help or advice. Don't forget, visitors are welcome ANY weekday and the WTC staff is there to help!
