Are your ancestors from Rio Grande City or it’s surrounding community? If they are then you will have fun browsing through over 1880 copies of The Rio Grande Herald that are online at the Texas Portal To Texas History.
You can find local history, graduation pictures, obituaries, and much more. I am sure you or your family will be listed. I found over 10 articles where my name comes up. Even a class photo with all the student’s name in them. I also found my father in laws graduating class “Class of 1974 Rio Grande City Texas“ and his picture.
Eight Generations of Vales and Sanchez and Consanguine Zamorano Curbelo and Trevino Families, is a very interesting family Genealogy Book. The author starts by describing how she arrived to Rio Grande City and then to La Grulla, Texas. Her story begins with her decision to get a teaching position in La Grulla, Texas back in the 1920′s.
I have yet to fully go over all the names in this book to see if any of my wife’s or even my ancestors are listed in there. I just thought that I let you know about this book since I am sure it will be of interest to anyone who has their roots in La Grulla, Rio Grande City and also other cities and towns of Starr and Hidalgo Counties.
