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 focused on teaching beginners the correct techniques and basic sources for searching for and organizing their documentation of their ancestors. We are now expanding 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.
We recently opened up membership in our group. The cost is $10 for an individual and $15 for a couple. It is a yearly membership and the money will be used to pay for speakers and for copies of handouts. Membership is not required to join us at our monthly meetings!
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 8 May. (See maps below.) We anticipate meeting at the same time and place for as long as it is beneficial to all involved.
We are now a Partner Society in the Texas State Genealogical Society. You can also find information on our group on U.S. Gen Web (http://usgenweb.org/) under Texas, Grayson County.
