November/December 2014


The holiday season is fast approaching, during these two months we will have an election, we will celebrate Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving, Pearl Harbor Day, Bill of Rights Day, Winter will begin,  and Christmas.  We also have a nice meteor shower if you are one of those early risers or one who never goes to bed !

The celebrations of the holidays in these two months, focus on things dear to our hearts:  freedom, peace, thankfulness, the right to vote, the freedom of religion, and a magical time of year. 

I invite you to share family stories as you gather with your family this holiday season.  Preserve those stories and pass them on to the next generations, use the stories to bind your family together.

Just like a pieced quilt, our family stories are the fabric of our lives, if we piece them together, we will have something that tells who we are, from whence we came, and what events guided the course of our lives.   As holidays create family traditions, so do family stories. 

It's easy, just start with "Once upon a time, ........................"

Our November program focuses on our favorite ancestors, the good and the bad, and what we learned about them as we researched them.  In December, we eat, drink and be merry, it is Christmas Pary time.  

We invite you to come celebrate and explore the craft of genealogy with us.  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.  Share and elebrate new discoveries with us.  

 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!
