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.

October 2014


 Those wonderful October days are here.  A good month for graveyards, but hey, we genealogists love them any time of the year.   

If you were fortunate enough to attend our genealogy seminar on September 20th, you know just how excellent it was.  NTGA was so fortunate to have Josh Taylor as our guest speaker.  The day was so informative, our speaker, well, top notch !  If you have an opportunity to hear him speak, take it.  You should also try and catch Genealogy Roadshow on PBS.


NTGA members pulled together and presented a wonderful day, a big hearty thanks to all who helped tie it all together. 

Be sure and note our website is the 1890 Reconstructed Census for Wichita County, find it under the tab:  Archives.

We have good programs scheduled for October and November.  In October we will meet the 9th, not the 2nd.  Please note the date change, we will have a presentation of Items Lost and Found.  Part of the program will feature the dees of the Monument Men and Women of WW II.  Won't you pull up a chair and join us at our table.

Special thanks to NTGA member Shirley Banks for presenting an October program to the Electra Genealogy Club on Find A Grave.

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!
