Dallas County History from the Ground Up

That's the title of a new two-volume set of books in our collection. It is written by Frances James who has been leading bus tours for the Dallas Historical Society for years. While giving these tours and telling stories about the cemeteries and monuments she was often asked if there was a book with these stories in them. Since there wasn't one Frances wrote one - or two. Actually there's a third volume in the works too. These are terrific historical narratives about a piece of our nearby county, accompanied by some beautiful photographs taken at each cemetery. Come learn about these pioneer Texas cemeteries and some of the interesting people buried there. This source can be found on our new items shelf for the next couple of months. After that it's at R Gen 929.3764281 JAM

A reminder that I will be out of the office October 14-25.

A second reminder of our genealogy program with Tresa Tatyrek on October 30 at 10:30am in The Dulaney Room. No pre-registration required.
