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 historic photographs from the area, newspaper archives and the library edition of Ancestry.com available to visitors at no charge.
There are 3 computers for accessing Ancestry, plus one computer attached to a microfilm reader. There is no printer, so bring a USB drive for your copies.
This repository and genealogical library is located inside the Mayer Museum, on the corner of Johnson Street and Avenue N, on the Angelo State University campus. Phone:

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!
