Texoma Genealogy Group

Welcome to the Texoma Genealogy Group web site!

The Texoma Genealogy Group is open to anyone interested in genealogy and pursuing their family history.

Our first few meetings will focus on teaching beginners the correct techniques and basic sources for searching for and organizing their documentation of their ancestors. We will then expand to other topics of interest to both the beginner and the experienced researcher. There are always bits and pieces even experienced researchers can learn in these sessions and they are always welcome to share their knowledge with the group. We intend/hope this group lasts for years to come and is a place that any researcher can attend and learn about new resources as well as exchange ideas.

Our group is free and no registration is required. We do not anticipate charging dues. We may ask for donations, at times, if our personal expenses for printing and paper get to be too much but we anticipate our copy usage to decrease as we ramp up the website. We hope to have speakers in the future and will have to ask for donations, then, because many speakers are knowledgeable and make their living this way.

We may take field trips to the McKinney, Plano area to utilize their genealogy libraries which have vast data and internet resources and can accommodate large groups.

Our meetings are held from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m. at Sherman Parks & Recreation Center, 1002 N. Music St., Sherman, TX on the second Wednesday of the month. Our next meeting will be 12 September. (See maps below.) We anticipate meeting at the same time and place for as long as it is beneficial to all involved.
