Taking a Trip in Texas?

You might want to visit some Civil War Memorials. We have acquired the book: Sacred Memories: The Civil War Monument Movement in Texas. This book is divided into geographic sections - East, North, North Central, Central, West and the Panhandle, South, and Southeast Texas. It tells the story of each monument and its creation. It has general maps that show the county and type (Confederate or Union) of monuments.

The Collin County Genealogical Society will present:
"FIND GENEALOGY BOOKS & MICROFILM FROM ANYWHERE IN THE UNITED STATES"
Saturday, July 23, 1 - 2:30 PM

Can't travel to your ancestor's home in another state? No Problem! Interlibrary Loan to the rescue!
This is a great tool for obtaining books, court records, manuscripts, and newspapers, all sent to your local library. Come learn how to locate materials, order microfilm, and obtain books from faraway places. (Presented by CCGS members Paula Perkins and Janice Quick!)
