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.

May 2015

 

Come join us for this month's program, Clues in Our Photographs.  NTGA member Mike Moody will present the program and Mike is quite fond of old photos and the information concerning their histories.  We will explore how something as subtle as the collar of a woman's dress can indicate the age of a photograph. 

We had a great program in April when Carolyn Gilbert helped us Put Leaves On Our Family Trees.  We explored this area's history and the importance of documenting and saving family history for future generations.

Here is a nice hint regarding WWI and WWII service records.  Your ancestor may have overstated his age when he enlisted.  Many men used an earlier birth year so they would be eligible for service.  So the month and day of birth may be correct on his records, but if you are having difficulty finding a record, use an earlier birth year. 

Do you wonder if you are related to someone famous?  Chances are good that you are.  Do the math:  you have two parents, four grandparents, eight great grandparents, and so on.  If you go back ten generations, you have 1,024 ancestors.  Twenty generations puts you over the one million mark; one of those is bound to be famous or infamous ! 

So there you go for May and as always:

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. 

 Circle the wagons with us, 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!
