The past few months have been a busy time for TxSGS as we continue to build momentum around our core objectives of:
- improving records preservation and access,
- developing partnerships and increase collaboration among genealogical and historical organizations,
- and expanding TxSGS’s educational offerings.
While future updates will detail taking a more proactive approach to records access, outline new collaborations, and provide ongoing announcements regarding our annual conference in October, this month’s post focuses on the status of TxSGS’s publication, Stirpes.
As some of you may be aware, Stirpes has been on a longer-than-anticipated hiatus due to a variety of reasons. This is a situation that we have worked hard to remedy and now have a plan going forward. As TxSGS continues its search for a managing periodical editor, Stirpes will be produced by an editorial committee. Two double-issues will be published this year. The first, expected mid-year, will consist of pending and new content. The second, expected near the end of the year, will be a Stirpes retrospective. That issue will consist of curated content from the past 55 years along with updates to select articles. I am looking forward to new issues of Stirpes and I am certain many of you are as well.
Again, I would like to thank each of you for your past and continued support of TxSGS and the good work we do for personal and family historians of Texas.
