How many Texas flags did you see flying last Sunday? (I noticed only one in our neighborhood.)
The date was March 2d – Texas Independence Day; the day the Texas Constitutional Convention signed the Texas Declaration of Independence.
March 1836 saw several historic events here in Texas.
Did you have an ancestor present when the Texas Constitutional Convention met on 1 March 1836? How about 2 March when the Declaration was signed? Did one fall at the Alamo on 6 March 1836? or at Goliad between 20 and 27 March 1836?
A new book has been added here in the Genealogy Center – Encyclopedia of the Alamo and the Texas Revolution. It compliments the books and material within our collection to assist you in identifying your relatives that took part – willingly (soldiers and statesmen) or not (victims of marching/looting/fighting armies) in this revolution.
You will find various volumes that identify soldiers who volunteered and fought at Anahuac, The Alamo, Goliad
and San Jacinto, as well as other less known locations.
Whether your family arrived before the revolution, during or after, let us assist you in your research. Our collection is constantly growing. If you have not yet visited the Genealogy Center, come in and take a tour, or better yet, spend the day. If you have visited in the past march back in and see what has been added.
