I am getting all excited, that time of the year is upon us. On October the 6th the 37th Annual Texas State Hispanic Genealogical and Historical Conference will get started. God willing this will be my third conference and this year the Spanish American Genealogical Society is sponsoring the conference in their home town of Corpus Christy, Texas.
If you have never attended a conference you are missing out. These conferences are a wealth of information and you also get to meet like minded people that are into genealogy, authors, vendors, and genealogical societies/groups for the state of Texas. People come from all over the United States and Mexico. People often ask me if it is worth it to attend these conferences and I always tell them “Yes, the experience and the people you meet is priceless”.
If you are attending please let me know. We will have a vendor table and please make sure to stop by to say hi or take a photo and also enter your name for a chance to to win one of two books that I will be giving away after the conference.
Give Away Prices
These are the books that will be given away, “The Foundig Families of Mier, Tamaulipas, Mexico and Their Descendants” (60.00 value) and Ancestors of Moises Garza From Nuevo Leon, Tamaulipas, and Coahuila From the 1500’s to the 2000’s” (30.00 value).

Also, if you are a member of Las Villas del Norte please go by our vendor table to get your Las Villas del Norte button that will only be available for members. We will also have applications to become a member so you can get the button plus other freebies.
