North Texas Genealogical Association. Researchers helping researchers.

About Us

The purpose of the North Texas Genealogical Association is to promote and preserve genealogical and historical data of Wichita Falls and the surrounding area including Archer, Baylor, Clay, Hardeman, Jack, Montague, Wichita, Wilbarger, and Young Counties in Texas.

April/May 2014

 Good intentions often pave the roads to _______ (fill in the blank) and it applies to the genealogy road too.  If we look at the genealogy road, then those intentions were to keep this NTGA page up to date.  Hopefully to post it each month.  I volunteered to do it.  

I wonder where March went?  It was in like a lamb and out like a lion before I realized it ! 

 Could it have passed while researching; while helping others research; while enjoying the company of our NTGA members; while working on the next monthly program; while getting new members posted to the membership list; while directing attention to members who were ill or in need of prayer.  Well, yes it was. 

 As you can see, we are an active club, with 61 names on our membership roster.  We work, we play, we eat, we take care of each other in our quest to build our family trees to the fullest extent possible. 

 As members, we extended our list of surnames many times as we help each other research. 

 An out of date home page is not an indication of neglect, it is a matter of a lack of directed attention because there are so many pans on the stove.  That means, it is going to be quite a meal. 

 So pull up a chair, join us at the table.  We invite you to come celebrate and explore the craft of genealogy.  Hurdle brick walls with us, document your family history with us, and cry on each other's shoulder when we discover yet another burned courthouse.   

 They say it takes a village to "yada yada yada" and NTGA members are a village of fun, caring, enthusiastic folks who love genealogy. 

 Come hear the band !! 

We meet at the Museum of North Texas History, 720 Indiana, Wichita Falls, Texas on the First Thursday of each month (except July) at 7:00 PM. Socializing begins at 6:30 PM. VISITORS ARE WELCOME!
