The Texas Portal to Texas History

A few days ago I stumbled into this website The Portal to Texas History, it is unique and very informative. It has digital newspapers, newsletters, genealogical journals, maps, and much more about Texas.

The Portal is a gateway to Texas history materials. You may discover anything from an ancestor’s picture in a college yearbook to a rare historical map. – http://texashistory.unt.edu/

Just by the short time I have used it it has become a great tool in my family search, I already found several great stories in the Brownsville Herald, a South Texas Newspaper.

I can assure you that this website will become part of your tool box when researching family in Texas. What a great resource to start the month with. Happy hunting, enjoy.
