TSGS Expanding Borders and Membership

TSGS has historically divided our membership into districts in Texas based on geographical location; the current configuration utilizes 20 districts to monitor and support the genealogy landscape in our vast state. Realizing that many of our members don’t live in Texas, TSGS has created a new district to embrace our out-of-state members.

District 21 is a new TSGS District that caters to the needs of our out-of-Texas individual, family, Partner Society and Library members. TSGS extends to all of our out-of-state members the same privileges that in-state members receive such as an annual subscription to STIRPES, our quarterly publication, tips and news on our blog and eNews, and more. Partner Societies, especially, can benefit from support such as increased publicity for events through our blog, our online calendar, and our monthly eNews plus the Society Page, a newsletter for our partner societies that addresses society management practices and suggests solutions for problems that plague all genealogy societies at one time or another.

We are excited about this increase in interest and membership in TSGS here in 2014, and we are looking forward to more growth! We are also proud to say welcome to all of our new members who have chosen to support genealogy and family history in the Lone Star State. Together we are preserving Texas family history.

If you are interested in becoming a representative for the new District 21, please contact Susan Ball, Director of Membership at membership@txsgs.org today. If you’re not a member and you are interested in joining TSGS and supporting genealogy and family history in Texas, please visit our Membership webpage for a complete list of membership benefits. Also, feel free to drop our booth 501,503 in the Exhibit Hall at FGS 2014 national conference “Gone to Texas” in San Antonio, August 27-30th!
