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.

At this time, the NTGA does NOT have any members doing local archival research. We still may be of assistance with questions concerning area resources.

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!

Rarely do we need to change the meeting time or date due to weather conditions or scheduling conflicts with the Museum of North Texas History. But it does happen. If you have a concern about a scheduled meeting, please use the Contact Us portion of the website
