The Texas General Land Office and Texas State Genealogical Society are partnering together to
bring Texas genealogists the very first “Genealogypalooza” on Saturday, May 17, 2014, at the GLO Headquarters in the Stephen F. Austin Building in Austin. The goal of the “Genealogypalooza” is to bring attention to a broad range of Texas genealogical resources in an open, fun, and
practical way that will be accessible to those in attendance, and further cement the Texas General Land Office and Texas State Genealogical Society as partners in Texas genealogy.
The 2014 “Genealogypalooza” will feature seven informative speakers and tours of the General Land Office Archives and Records for only $65 before May 1st (or $80 after May 1st).
Speakers and topics include:
- Bill Buckner – Core 101 Fundamentals for Beginning Genealogy Research
- Sue Kaufman – Planning Your Research Trip
- James Harkins – Genealogical Resources of the Texas General Land Office
- John Sellers – Researching Your Ancestor’s Plot of Dirt: The Adventures of Courthouse Land Research
- Daniel Alonzo – Time vs. Money: Preserving Family Documents
- Caroline Pointer – I Started Researching My Genealogy on Ancestry.com – Where Do I Look Now?
