Czech it out!

Czechs have been involved in Texas history from the early days, but immigration began in earnest shortly after statehood; today many Concho Valley residents claim Czech ancestry. Carroll Scogin-Brincefield, Vice President of the Texas Czech Genealogical Society, will present a program on Czechs in Texas at the November meeting of the San Angelo Genealogical and Historical Society. The public is invited to attend this free meeting on Tuesday, November 7th, 7:00 p.m. in the Fellowship Hall of Trinity Lutheran Church, 3536 Lutheran Way. Refreshments will be served.


Family Stories

The SAGHS Family History display posters will be exhibited at the Stephens Central Library (down town)  the entire moth of October. If you are in the neighborhood, stop by and take a look!


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 cetificate applications; Contact Jan (e-mail). Pioneer Certificate assistance is always available at our weekly "Research Assistance & More", Wednesdays at the WTC, 2 to 4 p.m. Certificates make a great gift!


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 (e-mail)
