Archive for January 26th, 2018

Some dates are more significant to folks – birthdays, anniversaries, National Holidays, etc.

On 26 January 1944 – Lt. Audie L. Murphy, of Farmersville, Collin County, Texas earned The Medal of Honor for his actions in France.

On 26 January 2008 the Genealogy Center opened in the basement of the remodeled W.O. Haggard, Jr. Library.

Our collection has grown each year. We have books, maps, indexes and even some microfilm.  In addition to seven computers and a print/copier/scanner, we now have an oversize book scanner.

Our collection includes volumes on immigration into the United States, migration across the United States, Native American by tribe, Military history from the colonial period to present day, and genealogy material from over 35 countries.

Our largest state collection is TEXAS, yet we have volumes from all other 49 states and the District of Columbia. Each state section includes separate sections – alphabetical by county (by parish for Louisiana).

Along the back walls we have donated family histories.

Come visit our center. Peruse our materials. Our staff is always available to assist you in your research.

Good Hunting!
